For anyone wondering what to do this coming weekend…look no further than Franklin!!
If that doesn’t take your fancy, we also have the Bride of the Year event. Always a wonderful occasion with beautiful brides capturing the magic of their special day again, and hoping to win wonderful prizes at the Pukekohe Town Hall.
Stay at one of the fantastic accommodation locations in the area and head on out to the unequaled local markets on the Saturday before having your say in the National elections at one of the many voting stations set up for this, around Franklin.
If you are into cars (hot rods in particular) then head to the Indian Association Hall on Ward Street and check out the huge array of vehicles – from dragsters to trucks, with only a $10 entry fee to the hall or just browse around outside and get your fill. The 50th annivesary of one of New Zealands biggest clubs is on all weekend!! (check out our What’s on page!!)
Sunday is another day to check out the markets if you didn’t get around to it on Saturday, or if you feel the need to go again – this time in Pokeno maybe…or head to Hampton Downs to check out New Zealand’s top drifters in action on Sunday 21 September. or even head to the Hunua’s and get into the Blackmores XTERRA Auckland Trail Run/Walk Series Hunua
