Family Colour Walk returns this March

Te Whiti Park will be awash in colour when the Hutt City Kindergartens Family Colour Walk and Fun Day returns on Sunday 11 March. A fun event suitable for families with children of all ages.

Last year’s inaugural event attracted a large crowd to Waiwhetu for the Colour Walk. Families from throughout the Hutt Valley joined in to walk along the 800m track where they splash each other in colour along the way. The community support for this event which fundraises for the Waiwhetu and Waterloo Kindergartens was overwhelmingly positive. Convincing the organisers to make it into an annual event.

“Children and adults alike had a great time throwing the powdered paint at each other and getting covered in colour. It’s an opportunity to get the community together and do something really fun”. said Andrew McGoff, President of the Waiwhetu Kindergarten Committee.

The powdered paint is made from a non-toxic corn starch based powder with natural food dye colouring.

“We encourage everyone to wear white so that the colours stand-out. It makes for great photos!” said McGoff.

Although the Colour Walk is the main attraction, there will also be other activities on offer. This year’s event is set to be bigger thanks to the support of Mitre 10 MEGA Petone.

“This is an affordable day for families with bouncy castles, slides, mini jeeps, food trucks as well as free activities. We invite families to make the most of an afternoon at the park and to feel free to bring a picnic” said McGoff.

Tickets to participate in the Colour Walk can be purchased on the Event Finder page or on the day. A family pass is just $20 and includes colour packets. Individual passes for adults and children can also be purchased as well as extra colour packets.

This community event is proudly supported by Mitre 10 MEGA Petone, Pelorus Trust and Supervalue Woburn.

Gordon Campbell: On Our Unreal Optimism About The Economic Impact Of Coronavirus

At this week’s Chinese New Year celebrations, PM Jacinda Ardern was resolutely upbeat that business with China would soon bounce back to normal – better than ever, even - once the coronavirus epidemic has been brought under control. To Ardern, the adversity has only accentuated just how close we are to Beijing Nothing wrong with being upbeat, if it can calm the nerves and turn business sentiment into a self-fulfilling prophecy. The problems begin when the optimism detaches itself from reality. What has been very odd so far about the coronavirus episode is that global share markets – normally spooked by mere sneezes or sniffles in the world’s major economies - have continued to be fairly positive, even as the epidemic has unfolded...
