Lovely fairy lights have been brightening up our
town recently, especially at night. These are
making Papakura look even brighter and more
gorgeous than usual.
Matariki flags will be up as we celebrate Matariki, the Māori lunar new year. And for the first time, this year we have a public holiday (Friday June 24) to further mark the occasion.

We are proud to have two Whales Tail sculptures locally. These pieces were painted by local Artist, Pascal Atiga Bridger Wharepapa (Sacred Taonga, located by the fountain in the centre of Papakura) and Leroy Roberts (Kaitiaki by the Massey Park Pool). Both bring even more colour to Papakura.
