Petone Winter Carnival 2010

leave a comment »

Well I have been decidedly slack of late posting on HuttNZ, as a new business venture takes off and my focus is on that.
But I would be rather remiss in not posting about last weeks annual Winter Carnival at Petone. Whilst I did not attend the days events, the buzz was that it was just as much fun as previous years for family entertainment, followed by the specatular fireworks show off Petone wharf.

Words don’t do justice to this carnival so courtesy of the web, here is a visual representation of what occurred, with the focus this time on nightime activities.

Follow the links from below, and thanks immensly to those that took these pictures
