Tranquil fair at twilight

After last year’s scorching conditions, the popular Tranquility Fair has moved to a twilight timeslot.
The fair, held at Ocean Grove Park on 6 January, will kick off at 4pm and run through until 9pm.
Last year’s fair was held from 10am to 4pm on a day that the mercury pushed into the high 30s.
In the event of similar conditions this year, the later timeslot will allow fairgoers to enjoy the evening.
The fair has been operating for 20 years on the first Saturday in January.
There will be more than 100 stalls selling jewellery, crystals, art and craft, clothing, handicrafts, fresh produce, books, readings, earth medicines, temporary tattoos, drums, massages, body care products and more.
To keep you fuelled, there will be 25 food stalls, selling a huge variety of tasty treats.
Entertainment kicks off at 4pm with Port Whanua, followed by DJ Tom Noonan, Malahdo, Wayne Jury, Raised By Eagles and Sugar fed Leopards.
Kids will be well catered for with activities and rides.
Entry for a full day of fun and entertainment is only $4, with children under 12 admitted free. All proceeds go to maintaining the park for the benefit of the community.
