Snow Forecast For The Mount This Weekend!

Snow Forecast For The Mount This Weekend!

Snow in January is almost unheard of , but FruJu is promising to bring it to Mount Maunganui this Sunday - 4th January - as part of their 'FruJu Summer Hits' tour.

FruJu squads will be out in force giving people refreshing snowball hits and encouraging beach-goers to have a ride in the New Zealand designed Zorb - an inflatable 3.2 metre transparent sphere with an inner 'cockpit' giving 'pilots' of all ages a fun, safe and exciting rolling experience.

To add to the party mood at the FruJu beach events, local DJs will be spinning tunes for a great all-round Kiwi summer Sunday holiday experience.

When: Sunday 4th January
Where: Mount Maunganui beach opposite the ZM house
Time: 12.30pm - 4.30pm
