Enjoy summer in the Hutt with family nights out

The silly season is in full swing and summer is here at last! We’ve got a bumper crop of events coming up, including a couple of great family nights out at the beach and park.

On Wednesday 16 January, 6-8.30pm, drop on down to Petone Beach near the Petone Settlers Museum and enjoy a summer night of fun. Have a go at waka ama (outrigger canoeing), cook your own kai on the campfire, learn about dune conservation, go looking for skinks, and take part in a beach hut building competition.

The following Wednesday 23 January, 6-8.30pm, head to Percy Scenic Reserve in Maungaraki and bring a picnic! Make a fairy house, join the scavenger hunt, take a tour of the unique botanical collection or visit the weta cave.

These are just a couple of the fun events coming up over the next few weeks, there’s even more over the rest of summer. Check out what’s on at your local library, enjoy our fantastic summer pools, and keep an eye on events and activities on Facebook and the Hutt City Council website.
