NZ comes to Toronto

Today we went to the CNE (Canadian National Exhibition). It is like a huge A&P Show and more.

The reason we went today is that they were celebrating 175 years so it was only $1.75. Also we were invited as part of the Kea group because a Kapa Haka group was performing.

Sorry photos aren't great but I forgot my camera so they came from my phone.

Was great to see some NZ culture in Toronto and we loved the performance. The group was from Christchurch and will be performing here until the 29th. We intend to go and see them again next week.

At the morning tea for the Kea group. Got to chat with them lovely people.
On stage at the International Pavillion.

You should have seen the people leave when they said they were getting people on stage to teach them the haka!

I must say I felt very patriotic and proud to be a Kiwi!
