AFTER a week of cold and rainy weather, the sun returned to Invercargill last weekend.
Residents throughout the city enjoyed the spring vibe and one of the main attractions, Queens Park, was packed with families having a good time.
Among them, Riverton resident Malia Win (2, pictured) had just been gifted a colourful ball.
“We love to come here – especially on a good day like this. She loves to run around, feed the ducks and play,” her mother Jean Win said.
Luiza Cho took her Swedish Vallhund Tora for a birthday walk as her dog turned 1 last weekend.
Ms Cho was born in Romania but had lived in New Zealand for 16 years.
The weather in contrast to her hometown and Invercargill was quite different, she said.
“Romania has extreme weather – very cold or very hot. Here, I think it is cold all-year round, so we need to make the most of the days when we have sun.”
