Originally planned for September 10, this event has been postponed to October 8, with the hope COVID-19 Alert Levels will allow this to take place.
As with the Blossom Festival and Parade the following day, the region would need to be at COVID Alert Level 1 to hold this event, so this date could change depending on the level status.
It’s planned to be a night of food, wine, live-music, and late-night shopping, a chance to discover new faces and places and enjoy all kinds of different “tastes” of Hastings.
From 5pm-8pm the road would be closed so party goers can roam from Albert Square to Landmarks Square, visiting the 24 pop-up wineries, as well as Parkers Beverages and The Apple Press to sample delicious offerings.
A selection of Farmers Market foodies and Food Trucks have been lined up to whet your appetite, as well as tasty treats from the East Block favourites; Sazio, Ya Bon, La Petite Chocolate, Fun Buns, Common Room, and the Hastings Gin Distillery (don’t miss their Blossom Parade Gin!)
No party is complete without great music, and Tropical Downbeat Orchestra have been booked for Albert Square and DJ Lil’B in Landmarks Square.
The Flock Events Street Lounge has seating to relax, or people can kick back with a massage from Soothe my Soul. For those more into being active, there’s Mini-Golf in Albert Square and some great retail therapy from So Vintage, Coco & Co, Cornucopia Organics and Blackbird Goods, who all plan to stay open late.
All fingers and toes are crossed that this FREE event can take place on October 8.
