Grey Lynn Park Festival

The Grey Lynn Park Festival is an annual, all day event in Auckland which features live band performances, hand-made art and craft, a variety of cuisine, and the list goes on. This year's event held on 30 November was the perfect opportunity to kick start  the summer fun.

Closer look at the flags display

We've met many Bob Marley fans in Auckland. No surprise this flag was part of the display.

There were fun activities for persons of all ages and of varying interests which included:


Battle re-enactment 

Mini jeeps for the kids 

Take a look at some of the New Zealand made products available for purchase that day.

Ethically made clothing on sale. 

Come and get it!

We couldn't take pictures of all the food stalls, so here are a few that we enjoyed.

The Jamaican food stall was in high demand that day.

Sweet treats 

 We sat on the grass and enjoyed live performances by local musicians.

We can't remember the band's name, but they were awesome!

Our smiles were proof that we had so much fun that day.
