Good morning SunLive readers and welcome to Saturday, July 27.

For those wanting to head up the Mount this morning, it will be wise to take a rain jacket as we may experience light drizzles, however it is expected to clear in the early afternoon.

Tauranga residents can expect a high of 15 degrees today, and cloudy periods are expected to remain throughout the day.

The Trustpower Arena is becoming a reggae music lover’s haven this evening, with festival Good Vibes kicking off at 7.00pm.

Katchafire, L.A.B, Tomorrow People and 1814 are only a handful of the acts performing this evening, and if you haven’t got your tickets – make sure to get in quickly as the only tickets remaining are the final release general admission tickets.

Another fun event to get involved in with friends today is at the Tauranga Crossing, where restaurant Something & Social is hosting their Bottomless Lunch, which is running over six weeks until August 17.

For $45 per person, you receive a chosen lunch dish, as well as bottomless drinks.

Something & Social is located at the sunny side of the Tauranga Crossing observatory, so get together with friends and be in quick to book in.

If bottomless food and drink and reggae music aren’t your thing, the Tauranga Farmers Market is always a hit with the family, held every Saturday on Fifth Avenue at Tauranga Primary School.

On offer is fresh organic produce, delicious baking, healthy foods and flowers and plants. The market begins at 7.45am and finishes at 12.00pm.
