If you’re looking for things to do this summer, then here’s a few ideas we thought you might like.
Noodle Night Markets
The Night Noodle Markets are back this Summer bringing the best local and international Asian cuisine to Auckland! This year’s outdoor noodle season will be held in Victoria Park once again across ten nights, November 29th – December 8th.
Entry is free, and dishes range from $5 – $15. This is a cashless event, so you’ll only be able to pay with Credit Card or Eftpos.
Taking the kids to see Christmas lights is always a fun way to get into the Christmas spirit. Whether its checking out your local neighbourhood for awesome displays, heading down to Franklin Road or how about a trip to MOTAT. Check out their incredible display with twelve evenings of festive fun! And this year there is an ice ring too!
Coca Cola in the Park
Have you experienced Coca Cola in the park before? It’s the biggest, happiest, most fabulous Christmas celebration ever. Grab your family and friends and head down to the Auckland Domain on Saturday 14th December for this fabulous, FREE Christmas party. The show starts at 7.30, but get there early!
Harcourts Cooper and Co Beach Series
The Beach Series is an all-ages Beach Run & Walk, Coastal Run, Stand-Up Paddle and Ocean Swim series held on Tuesday evenings at Takapuna Beach. It’s great fun for all the family. And a great way to get in some exercise over the summer.
