Featherston First Fridays create an opportunity firstly for fun times together as a community, with music being key. Linking together creative events, social networking, and encouraging use and ownership of public spaces. Each month has a different flavour and the concept evolves organically, in the spirit of a Fringe Festival.
Bring.. a picnic, sunscreen, your chess set, a pizza or fish n’ chips, friendly and well behaved dog on a leash, a picnic blanket or cushion, your dancin’ shoes…
Leave.. as a South Wairarapa Distric Council public space, the Squircle is designated smokefree, and it is within the Featherston Town Centre liquor ban area..
The Cross Creek Railway Society often run their Mini Train rides during each First Friday event (photo via Twitter- nb horse may or may not be present!)
FFF (Rebekah and Martine) organise and co-ordinate the main community party each month: if you have an idea for a First Friday event, and would like work with us and promote this as part of First Friday, we’d love to hear from you.
