EVENT Mapua Easter Fair 2016

_MG_2622 _MG_2623   _MG_2637 _MG_2639 _MG_2640 _MG_2643This annual fair is the largest one day event in the South Island and certainly the biggest thing in Mapua each year! Upwards of 15,000 people are reckoned to visit the Fair and it’s all organised as a school fundraiser by the parents, volunteers, children and businesses of Mapua – a huge achievement. It was great to see so many local businesses there; the Alternative Energy team with their solar that works at night (very clever), a Tee shirt designer who had actually managed to find material also made here in NZ as well as Nelson maker to put them together, Aroha and their delicious chocolate and Fabulous Fangs with their healthy doggie chews. I was very happy to see the “Small Cart with a big heart” of Streat Kitchen selling their toothsome sliders – and introducing their tiny new addition to the throngs, she was completely at ease.
