It’s the eastern suburbs’ turn to celebrate this coming Sunday 10 March at the Kilbirnie Festival, 10am – 4pm in Bay Road and surrounding car parks.
There will be music stages, entertainers, cultural groups, street performers, a children’s area, fairground rides, plenty of food and lots of craft and market stalls.
Kilbirnie residents and businesses will know that Bay Road has been undergoing an upgrade over the last few months. The work is going well and we expect to have it completed by the end of April.
We hope to have the footpath and kerbing finished on the east side of Bay Road by this weekend, and are working closely with the fair’s organisers to make sure they have as much street space as possible.
Next week, the temporary one-way system will be reversed and traffic will access Bay Road from the Rongotai Road end.
We want to thank the public, businesses and retailers for their patience while we complete this upgrade, which we hope will help revitalise the area.
