Queen’s Wharf Carnival.
It has taken some time but I have finally found the time to share these photographs with you which showcase the Queen’s Wharf Carnival – an event that I think should be a permanent feature on the wharf, it was attended and enjoyed by young and old alike. I loved seeing all the smiling faces, the colour, the smell of candy floss, the squeals of terror and joy, as well as the fact that you could quite easily forget that you are in the city centre but be in the thick of things. What I didn’t like was the traffic chaos centered around the ferry terminal and so close to where children were running around. A major rethink is necessary and closing off Quay Street might be just the ticket. At one point somebody removed the traffic cones because they were tired of sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic and drove through the area where people were sitting and children were playing – I hope that you are proud of yourself idiot. Besides that it was a great day out so thank you Auckland Council.
