New Plymouth hosts the 2012 World Festival of Music Art and Dance.

The festival features performance events, educational experiences, workshops all to develop an awareness of the worth and potential of a multicultural society.
The first festival was held in the UK in 1982 and since then there have been more than 160 festivals held in 27 countries.
New Plymouth's Bowl of Brooklands and surrounds provides an ideal setting and featured five stages, craft and food stall.
Well over 10000 attend on each day and this year the weather was superb.
I attended with members of family and friends and enjoyed experience.
