Add a comment

Mount Maunganui's Easter in the Park had drawn almost 8000 people just after lunch yesterday.

Willow Cuthers (pictured), 7, and her mother Abbie Cuthers were at the event in Coronation Park. "We're just enjoying the atmosphere," she said.

Event organiser Jackie Wickham said the event was going "really well", with the weather on their side and a larger crowd than last year.

Organisers had begun to divert about 60 per cent of waste to either compost or recycling, which was a new initiative this year.
