The Great Busk Off

yeti for websiteSaturday 3 May
Throughout the CBD

It is New Zealand Music Month and the whole CBD is celebrating. We are looking for talented local buskers to try your luck in the CBD and compete to be Whanganui’s favourite busker. This year we have changed the rules slightly. There will be 3 place getters. The busker that receives the most tokens from the adoring public on the day will win $500 cash! The busker with the second highest number of tokens will win $300 cash and the busker with the third highest will receive $200. Plus all tokens will be paid out at the end of the day with a value of 50c per token so no buskers will go home empty handed. If you would like to join in and show off your performance skills at the Great Busk Off contact us today! Phone 348 0157, email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Beautification Action Group

Beautification Action Group - Recruiting Creative Individuals Now!

Over the past few years there has been a lot of discussion about Majestic Square, signage and Christmas. Completed just over 10 years ago Majestic Square is not only starting to look a little tired but we also have now had ten years to observe how the community use the space and therefore how we might improve it to the community’s benefit. Just as the creation of the square required lots of creative input and fundraising so too will an upgrade of the space so we need your help. Mainstreet wishes to establish a working committee to achieve three main objectives:

1. To work through and finalise an up grade plan for Majestic Square.

2. To assist with a ‘Walk Wanganui’ signage strategy for the CBD begin- ning with two signs that will direct visitors from the i-Site to CBD attrac- tions.

3. To work through a plan for financially achievable, locally made Christmas

Decorations for our CBD. We want our decorations to be unique and our CBD beautiful at Christmas time.

If you want to put your creative brain or passion for decorating to good use and have time to commit to meeting at least once a month as well as doing some leg work in the community to further concepts and ideas then we need you.
