Artist Daniel Tippet will also be creating a piece of artwork on the day to be hung in the centre.

The event will also be a great fundraiser for a range of community groups who are running refreshment and food stalls on the day.

Everyone is welcome to join the party for an afternoon of fun and free entertainment. The event takes place at Te Matariki Clendon Community Centre and Library, Palmers Road, Clendon from 11am-3pm.
