Pasifika This Weekend

Some information

 

Pasifika is on this weekend in Hayman Park – Manukau City Centre. With Severe Tropical Cyclone Pam making life somewhat difficult it is strongly recommended keeping an eye on the weather forecasts as well as Auckland Civil Defence for the latest updates on Pam.

 

In the meantime here is some information on Pasifika this weekend:

Can readers let me know please if Auckland Transport DO open the Ronwood Ave building for parking as it is normally closed for the weekend. 

 

I might pop down tomorrow to Pasifika weather and other circumstances permitting to see how it goes. Hopefully this wont be the last time Pasifika is held in South Auckland.
