Finalist in the HotelClub Awards 2011
Hi. I am Kylie, the new Office Assistant at Te Wanaka Lodge. Look out here for my weekly blog on what’s been happening and what’s going to happen in and around wonderful Wanaka.
Last weekend was the 74th Annual A and P Show. This was attended by 16,500 people in mostly beautiful weather. Some of the highlights included entertainment by the NZ Army Band and as always – the infamous Jack Russel Race.
The Southern Lakes Festival of Colour this year is on from the 12th to the 17th April. This is a biennial celebration of the arts. Six exciting days and nights of astounding performances and inspiring exhibitions. The programme is out now – highlights include music from the The Phoenix Foundation, Michael Houstoun, Anna Coddington and Micheline. Check out their website for more information about this entertaining event.
Ski Field Openings
And the ski talk is already beginning to happen around town. All of the ski fields have set their opening dates and everyone is on the countdown!
Bring on the big snow!!
And last but not least – a big congratulations and celebrations for Te Wanaka Lodge who have just been named as a Finalist in the HotelClub Awards 2011 in the “Closest to Middle Earth” category.
Cheers for now and see you all next week
Mandy, Wayne, Kylie and the Team at Te Wanaka Lodge
