Havelock Mussel Festival
Year after year the Havelock Mussel Festival is a huge success, drawing crowds of up to 6000 people.
In 2009 there were a record number of 70 stalls which offered food, wine and beer, crafts and industry displays. This was in conjunction with top kiwi entertainment, lots of fun activities - it really is the festival that brings the whole community together.
In 2010 NIWA will again be taking a Gold Sponsorship of the event, sponsoring the The NIWA Kidzone. The NIWA kidzone proved extremely popular in 2009, with its move to the tennis court enabling organisers to provide many more activities for the children.
Frankie Stevens will headline the event in 2010, with other quests including the Lady Killers, Aaron Gilmore (Dancing with the Stars), Richard Till and Pom Pom the Clown to name just a few.
