We asked people on the street if the Bay of Plenty should have its own anniversary weekend or continue to fall under the Auckland Anniversary Weekend.
Yes, we don't really come under Auckland so I think we should have our own.
TANIORA HESP, 35
No, it's good having it the same week because there might be other people like us who have relatives in Rotorua so we visit.
ZANE GREER, 70s
Visiting his son in Hamurana
Yes, We should have our own anniversary weekend because we are in our own jurisdiction.
SAM MOFFIT, 28
No, I think it's good that we're under Auckland but it shouldn't be called Auckland Anniversary.
