Kauri Karnival

On Sunday Project Twin Streams took part in the inaugural Kauri Karnival at Parr’s Park. The Kauri Karnival was a Council-led free family event celebrating kauri and raising awareness on kauri dieback disease. Families could enjoy live music, dress ups, competitions, kapa haka, a Punch and Judy Show, animal petting zoo, bouncy castle, stilt walkers, circus games, carnival games and more. It also featured lots of stalls with kauri art, potting kauri seeds and more – all with a kauri theme. The PTS stall was enhanced by an amazing tall handmade kauri grove created by Derek, our PTS Community Coordinator for Opanuku and the Walsh Trust. Tina, PTS Community Coordinator for Oratia, made her own forest tree mask out of natural resources:- small branches cut and painted, dried leaves & small flowers and also featured a spider, green bug, moth, dragonfly, and red admiral. She also led a kids’  activity making clay collages with the kids and offered them cardboard  to be used as tree trunks and native tree leaves, ferns and seeds so the kids could use their imagination and be creative with that. A great day was had by all.
