The weather was brilliant, the crowds pac- ked in and the food vendors were rushed off their feet at the Eat, Drink and Be Crafty fair at Battle Hill on Saturday. The Mana Lions-organised event, in its third year, saw more than 5000 people attend, with 85 stalls to whet taste buds and empty wallets. Co-ordinator Bob Welsh says the stallholders were positive in their feedback, although a number of the food sellers found themselves overwhelmed by the queues and ran out of food. The weather was incredible, we had no tailbacks [down the Paekakariki Hill Rd] and what we ve heard from the public has been great. There will always be things we can look to improve, but it was a fantastic day. More animals -- such as a petting zoo -- could be on the cards next year, along with maybe a move to Sunday, to avoid clashes with other markets and Wellington Cup day. Money raised from the fair goes to Life Flight Trust, with Mr Welsh giving an early estimate of $7000.
