Community Spirit Alive and Kicking in Waitakere

February 23, 2006

Community Spirit Alive and Kicking in Waitakere City

Music, dance and a good dose of community spirit are the special ingredients in Waitakere City's 2006 Community Centre Open Days.

Following a positive response from last year's events, the 2006 open days are packed full of performances, interactive activities, food and entertainment - including clowns, face painters and the ever popular bouncy castle.

Medieval re-enactment group The Dark Company, a Lord of the Rings craft shop, Waitakere's own Sonar Chand Indian Dance Academy and a Kurdish band will form part of the free, family focussed entertainment.

Get down to your local community centre and experience the community spirit first hand.

Kelston Community Centre kicks off the 2006 Open Days on March 4. Get down early to check out a performance from Hoani Waititi School kapa haka group.

On March 11 Rutherford College Cultural Group will be performing at the Te Atatu Peninsula Community Centre. Be there between 10am and 1pm.

The third open day on March 18 at New Lynn will feature cultural performances by Kelston Intermediate School and the Te Rau O Te Huia kapa haka group.
