Island Bay Festival

If you missed the last ever Whopper Chopper down at Island Bay, then be sure to make the most of the incredibly warm weather with a day by the beach this weekend, when the 21st Annual Island Bay Festival gets under way.

There's all sorts of good stuff for young and old. The suburb's main street The Parade lives up to its name at 2:30 on Saturday with a good old fashioned dress-up parade from the shops to the park, where the Festival will be officially opened.

From 3:30 it's bands in the park, with our favourite local band Ghostplane playing the rotunda, as well as the likes of Rhian Sheehan, Module, and, errr, Super Sausage.

There's more stuff to come next week as well (oooh! Soap Box Car Racing!) - we'll keep you posted.
