Street Fest fun

The Waihī Art and Street Festival, held at the war memorial hall on January 26-27, was a chance for people to explore all kinds of creative endeavours. There were performances from musical groups, dancers and puppets; “have a go” craft tables; and plenty of stalls to browse. The rain held off, allowing the festivities to spread down the street, and the free event drew quite a crowd. Reporter ALICE PARMINTER joined the fun.
