One of New Zealand's most popular seafood festivals, the Whitianga Scallop Festival is an excellent excuse to head out of the concrete playground and up the Coromandel to sample some of New Zealand's finest delicacies. All the while, drowning it down with the array of craft beers and quality New Zealand wines on display and funking it down to the entertainment on hand.
Featuring a good selection of entertainment, there will sure be plenty of reasons to let loose should you choose, while the more culturally inclined can indulge in tastings and cooking lessons from guest chefs and seasoned scallop pros.
Like the old DB Export TV ads - export yourself - and get some of that kai in ya.
