Easter is looking like it will be a fantastic weekend weather wise in the sunny Bay of Plenty. Thousands will flock here for the weekend and of course with ANZAC Day thrown in on Thursday, chances are people will be here for the week.  

It is always an exciting place to be over Easter and into the School Holidays. The annual Jazz Festival is on over the weekend so make sure you get down to The Strand and to the Historic Village on 17th Avenue. 

There are also tons of activities on around the area for kids including canvas painting classes, swimming and surfing for those prepared to brave the slightly cooler waters.  

And of course there are people who are thinking of moving to this wonderful piece of terra firma and they will be out and about looking for their perfect home.  

Whatever Easter means to you, have a fabulous weekend, enjoy friends and family and reflect on our very good fortune living in this beautiful country.
