March in the Park

The second annual March in the Park went ahead with fine weather and good crowds this weekend at the Memorial Park.

The weekend opened at 7pm Saturday with Shakespeare in the Park. Slip of the Tongue returned to Te Awamutu for their fourth show, and second for March in the Park, with 'Two Gentlemen of Verona'. This early Shakespearian comedy provided a great laugh for the audience, many of whom followed advice to bring a picnic dinner and bottle of wine to go with the entertainment.


Sunday kicked off with Church in the Park, an open air, interdenominational service running from 10.30am until noon. The service featured the return of Island Breeze who also performed at this week's Impact World Tour show.

Picnic lunches and family fun were the order of the day for Pantomime in the Park, beginning at 1pm. 'Puss in Boots', a rollicking, fun-filled pantomime, was a huge hit with children and parents alike.
