Tiny Town draws big crowd

A wet day one of the school holidays resulted in a packed ILT Stadium Southland, with youngsters enjoying its Tiny Town.

Events and programme manager Alex Morrison-Bailey said the Kidzone event was cancelled due to Covid-19, so they decided to bring the attraction to the Invercargill stadium for three days instead.

"We had people waiting outside — before the doors opened. We are happy people are enjoying it and we are expecting thousands of kids on those days."

Pictured is 6-year-old Levi Moffatt who loves cars.

"I usually help my dad when he is fixing our car. But this is quite fun as well."
