Community together for Matariki celebrations
Matariki celebrations rounded off in Wainuiomata over the weekend, with locals gathering at Wise Park for the Matariki Whanau Festival. The event - which was a huge success, according to organisers - gave the people the opportunity to celebrate the Maori New Year in their own neighbourhood. Food trucks, live entertainment and kids activities meant there was something for everyone. The night finished with a fireworks display.
