See retail come alive at the MAKE IT a blenheim day on Saturday 24th October.
Shop mannequins will take on a whole new meaning when store windows meet live actors for the LIVE MANNEQUIN HOUR from 11am to 12pm. The Blenheim Business Association has teamed up with Stage Lab and the Boathouse theatre to bring some ‘real life’ to our CBD shopfronts.
Head into central Blenheim and be part of all the fun. Kids make sure you grab your Blenheim Fun Map of all the participating stores for the live mannequin event and visit each to get it stamped for your FREE ice-cream.
There will also be a market in The Forum selling an array of locally made arts and crafts plus games and activities for all the family including Connect 4, Jenga, Chess and a kids’ crafting table.
Kick back and enjoy the atmosphere with laid back cover music from Double Shot. Two guitars, two voices, performing acoustic covers of hits from the last few decades - from Simon & Garfunkel to Maroon 5 - playing from 11am to 2pm in the Rotunda.
