Good morning and welcome to Saturday. Ko te ra tenei i hanga e te Ariki. Ka koa tatou, ka koa hoki ki reira.

Met Service is forecasting a mainly fine day in the Bay with a chance showers from this afternoon.

Strong and gusty westerlies are causing it to be a three layer clothing day. The high today is looking to be 17 degrees with a low of 12 overnight.

Sunrise is at 7:12am and sunset at 5:11pm. High tide is 11:18am and low tide is 5:22pm.

What's on today?

Saturday is looking to be a busy day in the Bay of Plenty with a whole range of different things to get stuck into.

The After Dark Urban Light Festival which has taken over the Tauranga CBD is only open for one more night, but before checking out the festival, you might want to head to Bethlehem Primary School for the Bethlehem Brick Show Lego to see amazing Lego builds and collections on display.

The Tauranga Bird Club Annual Show is also taking flight with over 500 birds judged and on display at the Mount Maunganui Sports Centre today. 

Eleven artists’ works will be on show for people to interact with and enjoy. Photo Credit: Hunter Studio.
