The Oamaru Opera House hosted music, dance, and drama as the locals night featured again at the two-yearly Waitaki Arts Festival.

During the night, when about 40 performers entertained, master of ceremonies Alice Hore also led the crowd of about 100 people on a "walk down memory lane" to
commemorate the 10-year anniversary of the reopening of the Heritage New Zealand category 1 1907 building.

The Waitaki Arts Festival concludes this weekend.
