What’s On? One Love & Beach Events

Kia ora and welcome to Sunday, which for many of you, is the just middle of your long weekend.

If you’re fortunate enough to have Monday off, then there’s no reason why you can’t get out and about and enjoy the beautiful weather today.

The MetService has us down for a high of 27 degrees, and an overnight low of just 20, so be sure to put on sunscreen. Believe me, it’s a good idea.

The second day of One Love, New Zealand’s premier reggae festival, is on at Tauranga Domain from 11.30am, with more great acts providing an afternoon of easy listening and good vibes, including J-Boog and Katchafire later in the evening.

Meanwhile, over in Mount Maunganui, surfers and surf lifesavers will continue to test their skills in the final days of their respective competitions. New Zealand’s top junior surfers are competing in the 2018 Billabong Grom Series at Tay Street, while the Mount Maunganui Lifeguard Service team has taken an early lead on the first full day of the 2018 Eastern Regional Championships on the Mount main beach. Both events are free to watch, with action starting early this morning, so grab an umbrella and a blanket and come on down.

Elsewhere, well-dressed cyclists will take to the streets in Waihi Beach as part of the ‘Frocks on Bikes’ event. Participants can register at the Waihi Beach Hotel, where there are three route choices with tour leaders, all around Waihi Beach. All you need is a frock, a bike, a drink bottle and some sun block.

The event starts from 10am at Waihi Beach Hotel Garden Bar. A gold coin donation is required and prizes are up for grabs on the day as well.
