Every Fourth Friday of the month Paia’s galleries stay open late, serve little pupus, and let musicians and sometimes dancers have their way with the open spaces. It’s lovely — especially at my friend Christine Turnbull’s gallery, Turnbull Fine Art (look for the gigantic giraffe).
They’re a little late to celebrate Mardi Gras this Friday, February 24 … but if you’re in the mood to shake your tail feather, Paia is the place to be. The event’s organizers are bringing in a brass marching band and other live music, African and Samba dancers and drummers, and a fashion show. Festivities begin at 6pm and you can see more details on their Facebook event page.
