Te Awahou opening: a fantastic day on Saturday…..a couple of hundred people for the 4am dawn ceremony…then thousands of people turned out for the opening ceremony….great weather…..great events and speeches and performances….then the doors opened and they flooded in. Everyone very impressed and seemed blown away by it all. It has been 9 years since we started this project so it is a major to see it finally opening.
