It was a hot and steamy Waitangi afternoon, It was Bob Marley’s birthday. My cousin, My aunt and I were cruising on a 20min drive to Okahu Bay. Their was an annual “Waitangi Day Summer Festival”. My favourite two reggae bands Katchafire and 1814 were both performing at the festival, I felt ecstatic! getting to meet them sing live!
As I arrived, I was buzzing out with excitement listening to 1814 sing their hit song “My Dear Friend”. My cousin and I zoomed off to buy a heap of “Tribal Roots” clothes, My favourite two words.We headed straight towards the magnificent huge stage. The huge roaring crowd, danced and sang along with Katchafire singing Bob Marley’s ‘Exodus’ single “Three Little Birds”.
We had fun playing arcade games, Hitting each other with plastic hammers and enjoyed experiencing our first ever Waitangi day outing!!.
We cruised our way to the famous Mission Bay and had Great Tongs, and headed our way back home. So I thought to myself, I can’t wait to go back next year!!
