What’s On? Home Show & BOP Ooodle Club

ASB Arena is hosting the final day of the Tauranga Home Show today. File photo.

Here we are – the first Sunday in May.

For many, this weekend is about duck shooting, but for those of you who aren’t as outdoorsy, there’s plenty to do around town that isn’t life and death.

The weather forecast today is for a few showers and a high of 20 degrees, so keep a couple layers on this morning until it warms up.

Today is the final day of the Tauranga Home Show, where people can find all of their home products and service needs under one roof. On at ASB Arena from 10am-5pm, tickets are only $10 for adults, with children under 13 free. Today there is also entertainment for the kids with face painting, balloon twisting and an awesome bouncy castle.

At Fergusson Park in Matua, the BOP ‘Oodle’ Club will be hosting a playdate for all dogs and their owners. The club usually focuses on dog breeds with some poodle in them, but today all kinds are allowed to come along and enjoy some time out. There will even be prizes for best dressed dog at this free event that runs from 2pm-3pm.
