Support combining ‘Waitangi Day’ and ‘Lakeside’ in Rotorua in 2019

There is no public event marking Waitangi Day in Rotorua on the day. NZers mark the occassion with huge events in London, Sydney and the Gold Coast.

We have an annual Lakeside celebration 2 weeks after Waitangi Day. The event has gone for 20 years. It is well attended but needing a focus moving forward.

I would like the Trustees to consider combining both events and making Lakeside an annual Waitangi Day event, giving the Lakeside institution a new bi/multi-cultural focus moving forward into its next 20 years.

We need to mark our national day by coming together and commemorating how far we’ve come and celebrate the opportunities moving forward.

We want top notch kiwi music, kapa haka, pasifika choirs, cultural performances and food from all the communities that make up NZ.

If you support this, sign below and we can send a clear message to Trustees that this is what the community wants.
