One of Napiers Newest Pieces of Street Art

 At the fairly new intercity bus station, on the toilet block, is a sight that visitors that arrive in Napier via the bus will see before anything else.  It comprises of a group of notable Napier people in art deco clothing.  Two of these people I know personally they are parents of a Kea scout I use to be the leader of (he is now a cub scout along with my youngest son).

Bertie (Napiers ambassador)

the shadow isnt actually part of the mural its a real shadow off a tree I like it though 

The couple I know personally :)

New Years Eve and Happy 2015 to you :)

Every year there is a free concert at the Soundshell on New Year's Eve.  I hadnt been for years.  Ill be going again next year it was a fab night.  

We were entertained for 3 and half hours by 3 New Zealand born singers (2 of whom Id never heard of before although they have been singers for years and seem to be well known and Tina Cross ONZM.  Tina Cross is very well known and has been in the music business most of my life. )

At the end of the evening and the start of 2015 there was a MASSIVE fireworks display

The Veronica Bell that was hung just before midnight 

Although my photo is not at all good I LOVE flashmobs and this is the first one I have ever seen in person.  These people did a Maori flashmob whats more :)  They are performing the Haka and did so just before they turned the lights on to signify the end of the evening.
