As a Scout (Kea the youngest of the scouts in New Zealand) I went along to the Civic Service. We marched into Memorial Square along with other uniformed community groups including the New Zealand Defence Force, New Zealand Cadet Forces, the police, the fire service, St Johns Ambulance services and schools. To read more about ANZAC day read this :)

In the afternoon I went to see this stage show. A friends daughter was in it. I was impressed with the quality of the acting and the threatre group whom put it on. It tells the story of six Napier families whose sons go off to fight in world war one. I liked that I was able to go to the last performance on ANZAC day (I have been recovering from working (its been busy!!) the last two evenings its been on). I especially liked the fact that in the play there was mention of local road names therefore making it that much more real.
On the way home afterwards I took a few more photos at Memorial Square.
