Topic type:

Over the weekend of April 7 & 8, the streets came alive with music, dancing and vintage cars.

  

2012 Jazz Fest - Harley Couper -2 (26)Wandering around the strand and square yesterday (April 7th) took me back to my childhood in Hamilton. I was fortunate to be a student at Berkley Intermediate School when Colin MacMillan ran the music department. We played in a small group called Gentle Jazz,  and were neatly attired with suspenders and red cheese cutters. I’m not sure how good we were but I loved the vibe, loved the music.

 Some of that came back to me as I watched people enjoying the food, sounds, wine, vintage cars, dancing, children and each others company.

Congratulations Tauranga on hosting the festival for 50 years!
