Over 300 choral perfor- mers representing sev- eral island nations will dominate the morning programme on the sec- ond day this year s Pasi- fika Festival at Western Springs. All will sing in the annual event s first ever church service led by several ministers from 9am during a morning of family celebration and worship with a distinctly Pacific flavour. This year s festival on March 9 and 10 is organ- ised by Auckland Tour- ism, Events and Econom- ic Development (ATEED) and is expected to draw in a crowd of over 50,000 people per day. Suburban Newspa- pers, part of the Fairfax Media Mighty A Net- work and publisher of the North Shore Times, will fundraise during the event for Make a Wish New Zealand -- a charity supporting children with life threatening illnesses. General manager David Penny, who also chairs the Mad Butcher and Suburban News- papers Community Trust, says the festival looks set to be one of the best ever with authentic and traditional food stalls, performances from over 1000 dancers, 400 village community stalls, trade, art and cul- tural displays. "To be able to combine that with such a worthy fundraising campaign is fantastic," he says. Our kids are all chil- dren of the Pacific and Make A Wish has touched many of their lives.
