Tartan Week off to a flying start in Waipu

The snow and Classic Hits arrived at the Kasbah at 6am this morning

The kids were there building snow angels and snow men.

The oldies took photos and were enjoying coffee and eggs for breakfast.

I had a moroccan Crepe – really interesting to watch Aissam make them, and to eat – fabulous.

At 10am the Waipu Pipe band marched down the mainstreet with people (and a few dogs) dressed in tartan.The Waipu Business and Promotions Groupput up a $50 prize for the best dressed in Tartan. It was won by Jenny Jeffries and Helen Morrison up from Te Atatu especially for the weekend.They were off to the Tartan at the Races to try their luck there too.

Unfortunately the Street Theatre had to be cancelled because of a bereavement.

Tartan Flags on display:Businesses in Waipu had supported the Waipu Business and Promotions Group to purchase Tartan Flags for the main street which looked grand.Times Past Antiques had all their tartan on display

The Waipu Off Licence looked amazing – the shop and those that worked there – as always decked out in tartan.

After a tasting of Haggis at the Waipu Butcher I bought some to take home – yumm – great on toast!
