Festivities continue throughout the weekend, with the Auckland Seafood Festival, Oceanbridge Auckland Anniversary Day Regatta, Ports of Auckland boat tours, Royal New Zealand Navy Showcase, and public tours of the STS Spirit of New Zealand.

The long weekend events conclude on Monday, with another free concert, headlined by Goldenhorse, the Jordan Luck Band and Annabel Fay.
