Look no further – here we are – almost another weekend! and here in Franklin, it means that there are things “a-happenin’ ”
For instance – if you are looking for some family activities, there’s the ever popular Amazing Maze n Maize at Kingseat, to get lost in!!
Waiuku Primary School is another place to head to , as there will be a Summer Carnival there, from 10:0 a.m with stalls, water slide, a hangi (need to pre-order for this yummy treat, so if you’ve never tried a hangi – get in there now!), pony rides and so much more.
For the more energetic, there is the Mauku Fun Run and even if you didn’t feel like taking part, being an onlooker and supporter is fine! but check out the info just in case.
……and then there’s the motor and vintage enthusiasts that we can cater for too.
The Karaka Vintage Day should be an awesome event, once again. It always puts on a great day with machinery and vintage vehicles of all sorts, so if you feel like a step back in time, that is definitely the place to be.
Heading to Pukekohe in Franklin, is “The Ultimate Family Picnic”. Pack your picnic, kids, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, grandparents and whoever else you can fit in the car/van/bus and check out the BNT V8 Supertourers. This is the Round 3 event of the BNT V8 Super Tourers and not only will you have the roar of the engines and excitement of the races, but there will also be competitions, challenges and spot prizes for all. So that’s another great event to check out!
A little further south of Pukekohe, by only about 10 minutes, is Tuakau.
A growing town where, this Sunday 23rd, the celebration at the local museum of 100 years of the building will take place. The museum began it’s life as the local Post Office and operated in this way for many years, Of course the changing tide and growth of larger towns, meant that the local post office was no longer viable and the original building was to take on a new lease of life as the museum. So much history of the region and original families, many whose descendants are still living and working in the area.
So, THAT, my friends, gives you a few ideas of what to do and where to go this weekend – and if you are quick enough, you may be able to grab a night at one of our many accommodation providers so that you don’t have to rush back anywhere! 🙂
