You asked for it, we listened and its here!
So pack a picnic, slap on some sun screen, hop into your togs and cruise along to Whites Bay for some summer fun at the beach. There will be two hours of entertainment on the grass area including music from Nelson ukulele sensations The Uklectics and local rising star Millie Wensley.
Free inflatables and face painting will also be available and it wouldn’t be a kiwi summer event without Mr Whippy and a sausage sizzle so don’t forget some money for an ice cream too.
We can’t wait to see you all relaxing, bouncing, swimming and more at the beach, making the most of quality family time in the fun-shine.
28 Mar 2015 (Sat)
Forrest Estate Winery, Sat 28 Mar, 8:00am - 3:00pm
Set in the heart of the world renowned wine growing region of Marlborough, it starts and finishes at the award winning winery of Forrest Wines, Renwick.
The standard 101km course is a ride through what can only be described as a picture postcard of some of New Zealand's most beautiful scenery. Many believe it to be the nicest 100 plus kilometre course in the world with almost fourty 40km winding through the famous Marlborough Sounds.
There is the shorter 42km 'Taster' course right up to the 202km 'Magnum' to choose from with multiple innovative categories within those distances.
Once riders have completed their ride of choice, it is a case of sitting back and enjoying watching the 100 grape crushing virgins do their stomping of 3 tonne of pinot noir grapes in the huge oat vat or simply sample the various food and wine options as the event builds up to the final prize giving ceremony.
This event has a real focus on fun, fitness, friends and family.
