The Spring Fling wraps up this weekend with two final events, after a hugely successful two months, says Tourism Hawke's Bay CHB co-ordinator Trudy Hales.

Over September and October, an itinerary of 20 diverse events showcasing Central Hawke's Bay were well attended and received, she said.

"Demand for tickets has been fantastic with three events sold out across the programme including the Gwavas Garden, House and Puahanui Bush Tour, Dusk in the Daffodils and The Old English Garden Party at Chapelwick Coastal Estate."

She said each event was supported by locals, as well as people from the wider Hawke's Bay region and visitors from around the country with good numbers from the Wellington region, Manawatu, Hamilton and Auckland.


The two remaining events this weekend were the perfect send off and the best way to celebrate the final weekend, she said.

Hawke's Bay rock-dance cover band Naked Gun are taking the stage on Saturday night at the Central Hawke's Bay Municipal Theatre from 7pm for those wanting a knees-up.

"With a wealth of songs, and thousands of gigs under their belts, Naked Gun are just the ticket to dance the night way and celebrate our Final Fling."

Tickets cost $45 and include a complimentary glass of bubbles, supper, and a cash bar will be available on the night.
For locals there are transport home options and door sales will be available at the theatre on the night.

All weekend the National Eventing Championships are on at Arran Station, Takapau.

On Saturday there will be dressage and show jumping, then on Sunday for a cost of $5 per car people will have the opportunity to get close to the cross-country action.
