Little Rock Productions is delighted to present the inaugural Paekakariki In The Park, a celebration of music and Paekakariki’s famous hospitality in the beautiful seaside location of Campbell Park.

On Sunday, world-famous-in-Paekakariki troubadours The Fat Teddies will host a picnic for young families with their delightful folk favourites. Teddy Bears and other friendly folks are especially welcome.

The stage is located at Upper Campbell Park, Wellington Rd. Access also from The Parade. Food stalls will complement the two BBQs provided for those who fancy a BYO cook-up. Superyum hangi pres-sales from Paekakariki Cafe 042928860. Alternately, bring a hamper.
