Auckland is the world’s largest polynesian city, and the colours, customs and specialties of pacific peoples are on display at Pasifika, an annual festival, now in its 18th year. The various activities culminate in a huge one-day event at Western Springs (Saturday, 13 March, 2010).

The foursome above appeared to act out the songs and rhythms of a Samoan reggae group. Further along, I passed these interesting people:

The costume below is from Easter Island, and the three of them were collecting for Chilean earthquake victims.
