What’s on Today? Markets and music
Good morning sunners. It looks like it is going to be a beautiful day in Tauranga today.
There was not a cloud in the sky when this reporter embarked on her journey into work at 6.30am.
If you’re looking for something to do today, why not check out the Mount Farmers Market at 9am on Maunganui Road or the Oropi Market, also on from 9am, at the Oropi Memorial Hall.
If you want a bit of entertainment, then head on down to the Hop House on Wharf Street.
From 12pm, they will be hosting the Labour Weekend Blues and Brews Fest.
Sunday's music will kick off at 4pm with a hard out solo blues session from Grant Haua (ex Swamp Thing) before ramping up to the Most Fabulous, Most Groovy Brilleaux from 6pm with their signature British style Rhythm & Blues showing why they have been Tauranga's favourite blues band for over 20 years.
The second Rugby World Cup Semi Final between Wales and South Africa will be shown live from 10pm.
