There's plenty to do in Hawke's Bay this weekend.
1 Battle in the Bay 2019
Battle in the Bay was originally created in 2015 for the Hawke's Bay and Bay of Plenty regions to experience a hip-hop dance competition where they could build relationships with dancers from other smaller towns and studios while being equipped with the necessary experience to make a larger footprint in the national hip-hop dance scene. This competition has now grown to include dancers from all across NZ who like us are wanting to achieve the same goal for their dance community.

4 Celebrate Christmas in the Gardens
At the time of his unexpected death in October last year, Bob Hall had been a driving force behind the Community Gardens in Mangarau Cres, Havelock North. Just over a year later an event is to be held in the gardens to celebrate Christmas, but also in memory of him. Starting with games, former Radio New Zealand announcer, Heugh Chappell, will tell the Christmas story, followed by carols singing. Peak Vision church will again provide a free sausage sizzle, there will be stalls with a variety of items at bargain prices, and races for the children.
Mangarau Cres gardens, Starts at 2pm tomorrow
