The Havelock Mussel Festival is a family-friendly event, offering just as much fun for the kids, as there is for the grown ups!
The Niwa Kidzone offers some free entertainment for the kiddies - the ever popular bouncy castles, creative facepainting and more. And for parents with very young children, Barnardos will be there again this year running a parents area for feeding/changing etc as well as some activites for the under two's so they can enjoy this exciting family day out as much as the big kids.
