Inaugural Interislander Hutt River Festival 30th November 2014

I went for an hour and took photos at the Hutt River Festival. As it was a first, I had no idea what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised by how well run it was and the great atmosphere the organizers managed to create. There was a gusty northerly blowing but they found shelter on the inside of the stop bank and had the stage facing south. I really liked how they tied in the fun run/ walk (which includes a half marathon) with the event. I couldn’t stay for theĀ Great New Zealand Englefield Duck Race. I did get some photos of the ducks in a row all decorated up.

If this becomes an annual event, I do recommend checking it out. The fun run would be great to do + have family and support crew entertained while the ‘athletes’ are out on course!
