Auckland’s successful Pasifika Festival may become a two-day event next year, to cater for the burgeoning number of activities, stalls and visitors.
Up to 200,000 people were estimated to have attended this year’s festival.
Festival project manager Ayliss Ripley says that internationally successful performers Te Vaka were one of the highlights of the day.
“They haven’t played at Pasifika since 1998.”
Pasifika’s ACC Think Safe Breakdance Battle attracted numerous entries, and other activities such as three on three basketball, graffiti art and an interactive jamming area were popular with the young people.
“We’re looking at having a multi-day event next year. It has become so big that we need to spread it over two days.”
This was the 11th year the festival has been held.
