Hello Guys and Girls,
Just letting you know that if you are a big ski or snowboard fan, this winter in New Zealand is going to be perfect for you!! For the past 2 days there has been a huge snow storm in the South Island which caused around a metre to a metre and a half of snow!
Not only is this great for the ski-season, but it is also a big bonus for the annual American Express Queenstown Winter Festival that kicked of yesterday! As you probably already know, the Kiwis are always looking for reasons to make a party, and that is exactly how this Festival started!
Back in 1975 a couple of locals from Queenstown basically decided that the Winter is super amazing and that the start of it needs to be celebrated! Since then, the Festival grew to be one of the biggest celebrations of Winter! The Queenstown Winter Festival is a 10-day celebration including street parties, fireworks, local ánd international acts, comedy, family fun and heaps of more fun stuff!
