Stalls in the Village Hall were selling wares – food as well as arts and crafts that lent themselves for presents – from Poland, the Scandinavian countries, India, Japan, Cambodia, Bolivia and Iran.
During the day various performances such as dance, music and songs were offered and drew crowds around midday.
Multicultural Tauranga president Ann Kerewaro is pleased with the outcome. “By the end of the day, at 3pm, we were just about sold out. With proceeds of $500 I think we’ve made pretty good sales. For us it was a successful fundraiser.”
