What‘s On: another sunny day
Welcome to another fabulous day in the Bay of Plenty.
The malls may have quietened down today after the Boxing Day rush, so if there's cash burning a hole in your pocket join the other Kiwis intent on spending it. If you got gifts you're not so keen on, you could list them on TradeMe like the many other Kiwis turning unwanted gifts to cash.
So far, we're looking at a pretty great day in terms of weather - not too hot, not too cold, a high of about 25degC with the sun shining throughout the afternoon and into the summer evening.
If you're looking for something more than just enjoying the holiday before the weekend then read on, otherwise 'you do you' and enjoy your day.
