SHARE THE LOVE, BUY LOCAL
With New Zealand hunkering down for a period of family and whanau isolation, Destination Wairarapa is putting a shout out for local food and beverage producers.

As the door is shut on some of Wairarapa’s iconic events, a marketing campaign is underway to remind people that visitors continue to be warmly welcome.
Special shaped balloon Buster, a British bulldog, will be one of the star attractions at the Wairarapa Balloon Festival next month.
Celebrating 60 years, the world's premier shearing and wool handling championship, Golden Shears, is throwing a party with free entry on day one of the iconic event.
An extra day has been added to the 2020 programme which runs from noon Wednesday to Saturday, 4-7 March in Masterton.
Golden Shears spokesperson Philip Morrison says for the afternoon and evening sessions on the opening day entry will be free.
