The Maori New Year is coming up next month and Waihi’s celebrating with a variety of events and activities the public is welcome to be part of. There’ll be a hikoi, or walk, through the town, ending with a picnic at the iconic Pumphouse. Also on the agenda is a dawn viewing, a Tapuwai Tournament and a community concert. There’re also waiata and Te Reo evenings this year. Running from June through into July, it’s something uniquely New Zealand. We’ll keep you up to date here.
