‘Fish Out of Water’ programme is back
Rotorua District Council’s (RDC) popular ‘Fish Out of Water’ programme is back this summer with ice cream, Queen, Kiwiana and Dr. Seuss amongst the inspirations for the fishy creations.
Rotorua residents and visitors are being encouraged to go on the ‘Fish Out of Water’ trail around the CBD and then vote for their favourite fish by filling in a form at City Focus. All votes will go in to win one of three t-shirts, while the winning artist will receive a basket of goodies.
RDC community arts officer Kiri Jarden says some really great imaginations are at play this season.
“It’s the fifth year of the event and it’s great to see so many locals still enthusiastic about the project.
“Families, children, teenagers, artists, local businesses and community organisations have contributed to Fish Out of Water, and each year people are getting more and more creative.”
The fish will be on display until the end of January, and are located at Sole Outlet, McLeod’s Booksellers, The Styx design store, Monkey Kids, The Store Library Café, Triple 1 Five, Lady Jane’s, the i-SITE Information Centre and Rotorua Arts Village.
