Arrowtown's long wet lunch

Hundreds of people took yesterday afternoon off work to sip and dine along Arrowtown’s main street for the 11th annual event, coinciding with the first day of New Zealand’s Covid-19 traffic light alert system.

Umbrellas were the order of the day as guests intermittently ducked for cover between courses and downpours.

A charity silent auction, which included alcohol, gift hampers, books and paintings, raised money for the Arrrowtown Volunteer Fire Brigade.
