On Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 March, Western Springs Park will be transformed into a slice of Island paradise, with 11 villages wrapping around the lake.

There will also be cultural performances from six leading Auckland high schools.
On Sunday, there will be a choral celebration at the Fijian Village, from 11am – 1pm.
There will be performances from the Auckland Gospel Choir, Stand Up Stand Out performing arts competition participants from St Paul’s College, Aorere College, Southern Cross Campus and Avondale College, and Resonate.
