exploring Wellington

Petone Winter Carnival


The Petone Winter Carnival is a family event with street performances, a food fair, market stalls selling clothing, craft or candy, and and three stages with lots of local live acts. It is held in a beautiful location, right at the waterfront of Petone, Wellington’s first European settlement.

I came to see the Balkanistas, a large ensemble of Wellington musicians playing brass/gipsy music from the Balkan area. Although there were only 14 of the 24 Balkanistas on stage, it was a great performance which the audience seemed to enjoy a lot.
