31 December 2009

Its New Year's Eve and we celebrate by telling you all about events happening to mark the day from Hogmanay in Dunedin all the way to the firework spectacular from the Sky Tower in Auckland. Plus the myriad music festivals happening around the country like Music Mountain Matakana and the new heavy metal/punk festival Detonate in Taranaki. We cross to New York for a kiwi perspective on the ball drop in Times Square, and are you desperate and dateless for New Year's Eve (like Simon?) then we have the solution for you.
