Labour Day

by Englischer Online Now Jul 30, 2008 at 9:49 AM

Hi everyone, my wife and I will be staying in Palmerston North over the Labour Day weekend while we attend the rail centenerary celebrations at Fielding.

On Labour Day itself, will the town be open as normal (shopping, bars, restos etc.) as we would like a quiet day before heading off for Auckland on the steam special on Tuesday 28th Oct.?

Failing that, any suggestions as to how to spend the day without travelling on trains would be appreciated by my long suffering wife!

    Most shops and all restaurants are open on Labour Day. Shops in NZ are only closed on Christmas Day and Good Friday and the morning of ANZAC Day. (Hope I did not forget any... ;-)

    As you want to spend a quiet day I do not dare to make any good suggestions on how to spend the day in a more interesting way than eating, drinking, and shopping ;-)
