The inaugural Pasifika Gala in Glen Innes town centre on Saturday, 3 November, was a fantastic family day out. There were kai stalls selling traditional dishes from each of our Pacific Island neighbours. Highlights of the day included Matakau Tufuga Fakamotu from Niue, Kau Fafine Lototaha from Tonga and MBrace Pacific. Pacific Elvis AKA Johnny Angel wooed the crowd and Will Crummer and the Rarotongans and Sounds of Tamaki were a hit. Thanks to all the entertainers and stallholders.
