Japanese Chor-Farmer Choir and Featherston Gentleman Singers
Our neighbour has a flagpole outside his house and likes to run up theme-based flags. Today he’s flying the Japanese flag to welcome the Japanese Chor-Farmer Choir, a group of male singers from Tokyo who visit Featherston every second year and give a concert.
You can buy tickets for $15 each from South Wairarapa libraries, Featherston Heritage or Fell Locomotive museums, Elmo’s Bookshop in Carterton, or Aratoi in Masterton.
Carterton Daffodil Festival
This Sunday is the popular Carterton Daffodil Festival – always a great day out. There’s two parts to the festival – the fair is always a good place to eat lunch and hunt for bargains and this year it’s being held in the different location of Carrington Park.
Part two – the Daffodil picking – is held at a private house out near Gladstone and is always fantastic. You really can’t underestimate how amazing it is to round the corner and see a field full of daffodils.
