Hop into spring

At last, we seem to have moved beyond the very wet winter we have experienced and now embarking on spring.

However, like always, spring in Auckland continues to deliver variable weather.

We hope that the weather is brilliantly fine for Saturday October 15.

This is the day for the Howick Village Hop. The event has had to be postponed and then cancelled twice last year because of Covid.

The interest this year is immense and we anticipate at least 200+ hot rods, classic cars and caravans will be lined up along the main thoroughfare of Howick Village.

There are registrations from car owners as far away as Pokeno, Waiheke Island, Manly, Kumeu, Te Aroha, Ngatea, Waipu, Whangarei and Whangamata.

The streets that will be closed for the Hop are Picton Street, the upper section of Uxbridge Road outside The Good Home, Parkhill Road and Moore Street. Howick Coastguard have kindly agreed to assist us again with marshalling/parking on the day.

The main entertainment stage will be on Picton Street next to The Good Home with entertainment from The Groove Guys, Foxtail Rumble Band, City of Sails Rock and Roll dancers and a special set by ‘Elvis’.

A rock and roll DJ will be entertaining the crowds in the market area and there will be face painting and airbrush tattoos for the big and smaller children.

We wish to acknowledge sponsorship from Howick Local Board, Howick Village Optometrists, Mother’s Polishes, Habit Health East Tamaki, Bar’s Bugs, REPCO Highland Park and Life Pharmacy Howick.

This is a not to be missed event. Mark it down in your diary now and come along to Howick Village for a magnificent day of fun entertainment and a chance to admire a host of beautifully presented vehicles.

Saturday 15th October in Howick Village.
