Three council-owned arts and culture facilities held free community events to welcome residents back to Hastings after Covid-19.
In an attempt to reconnect locals with each other and the CBD through arts and culture, Hastings Library, Hastings City Art Gallery and Toitoi – Hawke's Bay Arts & Events Centre held Titiro Mai – a free community day on Saturday.
Singing, dancing, story-telling and face painting were just a few of the activities on show across the three facilities.
Hawke's Bay Today photographer Paul Taylor was there to capture it all.
