We wrapped up the summer with an event focused on music and performing arts…and we hope you enjoyed it! Across multiple stages, a variety of bands filled Cooke Street with their sounds! The Pinch of Salt warehouse also got in on the performance action, with the flashmob-style performance by Maori Haka Group, Rongomau.
