One of the most spectacular events on Auckland's cultural calendar is to be showcased on Triangle Television in an hour-long extravaganza. It is the Triangle Television Mr India NZ 2005 Contest which was held on Saturday at the Logan Campbell Centre in Greenlane attracting a 2000-strong audience.

Filmed by a Triangle Television crew on the night, the event will air on Triangle at 8pm on October 11.

Viewers will also be treated to a smattering of Kiwidom and Pasifika from some of the performers at the event, who provided a variety of colourful entertainment, and from the contestants themselves who performed a spectacular haka to kick off the show.
