Cook Island drummers entertain the crowd during the South City Street Party on Friday night. With music, food and entertainment… the southern hub turned on a mini-Mardi Gras as hundreds of people took to the streets. South Alive manager Cressida Evans said organisers were extremely happy with the turnout to the annual South City Street Party. In its second year, Ms Evans said this year’s event was “really awesome… with a great community vibe out there”. There were events for all ages from children to grandparents and Ms Evans said there had been a lot of positive feedback. Marching teams, parkour participants flipping, a unicyclist, live music and food trucks added to the party atmosphere. For next year Ms Evans was hoping more community and sports groups in the area would take part. “It is a great way to really celebrate everything South Invercargill has got to offer.”
