Oamaru on Fire!

Hot on the heels of an amazingly successful first run last May, Oamaru is looking forward to the second annual Oamaru on Fire celebration on Queen’s Birthday Weekend (31 May 2013). This event brings pyrotechnics, music, food, and fun to the Harbour Street historic area, lighting the night and warming up the hearts of all who visit.

Also on Queen’s Birthday Weekend is the annual Steampunk Festival, bringing fans of this time-bending art form from around the world to Oamaru to show off their fanciful costumes on the stage of the Oamaru Opera House for the Steampunk Fashion Show, and dancing the night away at the Steampunk Ball. There’s even an opportunity for people who are not so familiar with Steampunk to learn all about it from a true expert in the field–who knows, you may go home with your own Steampunk persona!
