The Paihia Summer Festival – is one of our favourites at Blah Blah Marketing and Events. We run this on behalf of Business Paihia Inc – it is run in the first 2 weeks of January. Consisting of 10 – 12 free fun filled family focused events for visitors and locals alike. Each year we have the favourites – The Beach Dig, Sandcastle competition and Classic Games to name a few – but we also come up with new events each year to keep it fresh! These events are supported by many, many local businesses and community groups, to ensure that it can be offered free for all to enjoy! The concept behind it is to encourage longer stays from visiting families, over the years we have come to get to know and watch families grow from all over New Zealand as they have become repeat long term visitors to our region due to this fantastic event schedule. We also know many local families plan their school holiday activities around the events!

Watch this space for the dates in January 2016!
