The Auckland Anni- versary weekend celebrations will offer something for everyone and will bring Auckland together to celebrate as one region for the first time, he says. This year, Anniversary weekend s major events include the Auckland International Buskers Festival, the Auckland Seafood Festival, Ocean- bridge Anniversary Day Regatta, the St Jerome s Laneway Festival in Aotea Square, the Royal New Zealand Navy ship open days, boat tours of the Ports of Auckland facilities and activities at the Voyager NZ Mari- time Museum. Festivities kick off on Friday night with the opening of the buskers festival. Busking performances continue throughout the weekend with local and inter- national acrobats, comedians and more. The fifth annual Auck- land Seafood Festival runs daily from noon on Saturday until 7pm on Monday at Te Wero Island at the Viaduct. The festival offers a huge range of seafood deli- cacies and a wide selec- tion of local and inter- national wines, premium beer and cider brands. Tickets are $15. A fireworks display will be visible from many vantage points around the harbour area on Sunday evening. Fire- works have been a popu- lar feature of Auckland Anniversary weekend for many years, with major displays happening from 2006 onward. The maritime high- light will be the annual Anniversary Day Regatta on Monday. It s one of the biggest single- day regattas in the world and pre-dates the America s Cup by 12 years. This year it will include waka ama races, dragon boat demon- strations and a wide range of events for all manner of marine craft including power boats, yachts and even tug boats. Other popular mari- time-themed activities during the long weekend include the Royal New Zealand Navy ship open days at Princes Wharf on Saturday and Sunday and Ports of Auckland tours.
