Bring on the stilt people!




This weekend gone we travelled 2 1/2 hours up to Whitianga for the Scallop Festival - a small town on the Coromandel Coast that hosts a fun filled day eating Scallops cooked in different ways by different stall holders. Let's just say that for us it was an expensive weekend but we had an absolute blast.

Among the crowds of people and yummy food these fascinating stilt people were showing off their costumes. I don't know how they did it but they walked around for hours on stilts inside their clothes - pretty funky huh?

  1. What fun! One year I think I will get to the scallop festival. The stilt people are pretty cool, and have a better sense of balance than I do.

  4. Oh they are amazing, but i would love to eat scallops. I wish to see your photos of the food preparations. Now i am salivating as scallops are not very common here in the local scene, harvests are sent for export.
