This Easter, head to the Wairarapa Balloon Festival as spectacular hot air balloons fill the skies over the region. The family fun event takes place 13-17 April, and it's not just about beautiful balloons up above. There's also a full festive programme of activities, ranging from Easter egg hunts and the Resene Splash N Dash to a park to paddock challenge. On Easter Friday, enjoy the Trust House Night Glow, where the balloons glow like lightbulbs and set to the skies choreographed to music. For tickets and details, visit
