86,000 Attend Warbirds: A Pity They Couldn't Shop

The ODT reports today that 86,000 people visited the Warbirds Over Wanaka airshow over the last three days.

It is a great shame these people had to drive to Queenstown to shop!

The Government has chickened out of taking a decision over Easter trading. This is a disgrace. But even if they did not want to bite the bullet nationally, they could at least, have removed the anomaly which sees Wanaka and Rotorua closed while Taupo and Queenstown are open.
