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

There has been a lot of talk lately around the disused Fire Station in Waterloo Road and the vandalism occurring.
The back story is that the Fire Station once decommissioned has not ended up in Fire Service hands but is now part of the Office of Treaty Settlement.
This and more addressed by Dave and Camille Breakfast show yesterday on
90FM Classic Hits including the problem at the old Petone Tech as well.
I will post some photos of the dragons round the back via Twitter soon. (lol)
A small fire occurred at Westfields Queensgate today.
The fire began near the foodcourt just before four this afternoon and the entire mall was evacuated, as a safety measure.
Westfield’s spokeswoman Bev McGee says the fire was put out as the mall was being evacuated as standard practice and management is now investigating the cause of the fire.
Ms McGee says there were no injuries and no damage to the surrounding area.
