Franklin region is in for a busy weekend!

Goodness – this time of the year continues to be pretty darn busy here in Franklin Country!FC logo pic

If you are keen on antiques and collectables, then we have the place for you! Pukekohe Town hall will be the location to check out all of those items of interest and memories, with the Antiques and Collectables Show. antiques pic
The show is on both Saturday and Sunday and there will be plenty of other things to visit too. The market is always on at the Massey Ave carpark on a Saturday, and another at the Pokeno Village on Sunday, with great fresh produce and much much more, so well worth a visit too.

On Sunday, if you are feeling energetic, there is the 1/2 marathon or 6 k fun run, whichever you feel you can cope with! You will need to register and get there nice and early and afterwards, just over the road, is the Pukekohe Raceway’s “Bridles, Brollies and Beauties” event. By the looks of the weather forecast, it should be a chance to get some sun and have some fun.

…..and if that’s not enough action to cover, there is always the ENZED V8 Jetsprints at Meremere also on Sunday!

If you are worried about somewhere to stay then we have a range of accommodation options here in Franklin. There is the wonderful Tuakau Hotel (they also have accommodation at the Mercer airfield). Touchwood Motel in Pukekohe is handy to all events, as is Aveda Motor Lodge and BK’s Motorlodge and we have a number of B&B’s too, if that’s more your style! as well as camp grounds such as Clarks Beach Holiday Park.
The beaches are fairly handy too – the black sand west coast Karitahi or Port Waikato, or the calmer east coast beaches like Maraetai. Clarks Beach is a great place for swimming, boating and more, along with Glenbrook Beach, Waiau Pa, Kaiaua…the list is endless.
PLUS…if you are into golfing, then there are at least 5 or more courses all handy, with the Pukekohe course on the main road into town. The guys there would love to help get you set up for a round!
So check out our info on our website and come out our way for an awesome weekend with absolutely heaps to do and great weather to do it in!Clarks Beach
