Bot Gardens this weekend – Trees, Tulips and er… a fairy.
The best of the region’s tree climbers head for the skies at the Botanic Garden on Saturday 24 September.
The annual New Zealand Arboricultural Association Regional Tree Climbing Competition – a chance for competitors to show off their skill, strength and agility – is on between 9.00am and 4.00pm in 30 metre-high trees around the Botanic Garden duck pond.
Meanwhile, on the Sound Shell Lawn on Saturday, you can dance to a different beat at the Dances of the World workshop. Bring your friends between 1.00pm-3.00pm for some active, healthy fun for all ages. On Sunday, Fairy Trina will be telling stories at the Sound Shell at 11.00am and 1.00pm followed by her pinata parties at 2.00pm (for the under-fives) and 2.30pm for kids aged six to 10 years..
And of course, the tulips will be at their peak until Mid October
