Waikato Cherry Tree Festival

Over the weekend of September 21-23rd, the fabulous people at the English Cherry Tree Manor just outside Tamahere near Hamilton, hosted the highly-esteemed Waikato Cherry Tree Festival. It was a marvellous occasion with face-painting, fan dancing, kung-fu demonstrations and more food than you could ever hope to eat. And of course, the blossom was most spectacular. A must see if you're looking to celebrate the arrival of spring next year. You can also stay at the Manor House throughout the year as it operates as a hotel. Click here for more info.
