West Coast Events
Everyone loves a good excuse to get dressed up, spend time with the family, eat some good food, get in shape or just have some fun. For what is considered a small region in terms of population, the West Coast of the Southern Alps, New Zealand hosts some major internationally recognised events. Others are small but really unique and interesting. Why not come and experience a West Coast event yourself? And if you have a favourite costume, you might as well bring it.
