IT has been a challenging time for many businesses due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

So ILT Stadium Southland manager Nigel Skelt thought it was a good idea to help business owners by giving them a chance to showcase “what they do best”.

The venue will host the ‘”Love Local Weekend — Support Southland Businesses” market event this weekend.

Mr Skelt said the event would feature about 100 stalls with a huge variety of products on offer, from baking to crafts, food and entertainment.

“We have something for everyone.”

It would be a one-off event as it was replacing the venue’s traditional crafters’ market, which was cancelled this year due to the pandemic, he said.

Mr Skelt was expecting about 4000 people to attend on both days of the event.

“It is a celebration of our businesses and our community. I’m very excited.”

  • Love Local Weekend Businesses, ILT Stadium Southland, Saturday, July 11, and Sunday, July 12. Free entry.
