Hastings City Night Markets Come to Life – Rain or Shine

Shade7 Press Release 10/01/2014

Hastings City Night Markets Come to Life – Rain or Shine


Click for big version.

Every Thursday night Hastings City comes alive as it fires up the Hastings City Night Markets. In the first few weeks after opening in November last year, they attracted more than 6,000 people. It continues to attract strong crowds with 2014 already showcasing a variety of entertainment for the whole family.

The Hastings City Night Markets are an initiative from the Hastings City Business Association, offering a safe and fun family event for the city and also gives local producers a platform to showcase their arts, crafts and food to a wide audience. In addition to a variety of stalls there are also activities and live music to keep both children and adults entertained.

At least twenty stores in the CBD have supported these Night Markets by agreeing to stay open late while the event runs. The idea is for locals to shop the retail stores, the Night Markets and then to move onto the Cinemas, Art Gallery, Opera House and the like, to make a complete night of fun.

A New Zealand based shade specialist, Shade7, was approached by Hastings City Business Association to supply branded gazebos for this exciting weekly event. The requirement was for a highly durable product that could withstand frequent use under any weather condition. As the markets are open every Thursday, rain or shine, it was important that these gazebos could handle the varying weather conditions.

Shade7’s Heavy Duty Aluminium Gazebo was the obvious solution for this brief. Like all of Shade7’s gazebos, these were able to be branded with the Hastings City Business Association Logo. In addition to the gazebos, Shade7 were able to supply battery operated lights to fit into the gazebos to give lighting for the stalls, which also gives the printed logos a glow in the dark effect. Susan McDade, City Centre Manager said they were “absolutely perfect” and that they have had rave reviews on the gazebos.

The Hastings City Night Markets run every Thursday night from 5-9pm located in the mall beside the clock tower and the fountain. For more information on the Hastings City Night Markets visit Hastings City Business Association and for information on branded gazebos visit Shade7 Gazebos.

Gordon Campbell: On The Farcical Elevation Of David Seymour

With the election won, it’s time to find jobs for the boy. David Seymour is the Act Party’s latest scrounger to be rewarded by the National Party, and not only with a seat in Parliament. This time around, a couple of parliamentary Undersecretary posts in education and regulatory reform have been thrown in, plus an annual salary of $175,000 while he learns the ropes. Shouldn’t Seymour at least be put on a 90 day trial before he gets his hands on that sort of serious moolah?

It would be for his own good, really. At this rate, Act is never going to learn how to make its own way in the world More>>
