The Mercury Bay Seaside Carnival takes place at Buffalo Beach Reserve in Whitianga on 8 January ever year. The carnival is Mercury Bay Area School’s only fundraiser.
This year a second fundraiser will be held to provide funds to hold a bigger and better carnival and also to raise funds for the outdoor play areas at the school. A “Gala Evening with Irene Van Dyk” will be held on Friday 23 September in the school hall. International netballer Irene Van Dyk will be the guest speaker. In addition to listening to and meeting Irene, guests at the formal dress evening will be treated to a three course meal and, once all the formalities are completed, the opportunity to dance the evening away to the sounds of the Mercury Bay Big Band and well-known local performers Justine Williams and Chocky Brown.
The evening is hosted by The Mercury Bay Informer and sponsored by a number of local businesses.
