Upper Hutt: Spring Festival 2009 highlights

What a beautiful day, with just a light sprinkling of snow on the Tararuas overlooking Upper Hutt for this years Spring Festival.

Thanks must go to the Upper Hutt Womans Centre  and the Rimutaka Trust for organising the event. The Womans Centre estimated profits from this years event would be around $12,000, which would help fund courses, counselling and operating costs. The centre is among the many organisations running community education classes whose funding has been axed by the government from next year.

Many other local community and business groups did a roaring trade as entertainment of all sorts was provided to what must have been a record crowd in attendance. It still was difficult to travel down Main Street at 2.30pm, just shows what great weather can do.

Just some video highlights below of the activities and entertainment offered :-
