Junior Rugby Registration Day ramped up a few notches when Pato Alvarez decided to throw the biggest party of the year for our children.

The festival of the year took place at Arataki Sports Club on a sunny Sunday in March. Pato Entertainment rounded up local businesses and threw one of the best block parties we’ve ever been to. Everything was laid on by the sponsors: drinks, sausages, bouncy castles and the epic on-stage line up of William Waiirua, Stan Walker, Ria Hall and General Fiyah. They really got the party going! A big thanks to the two thousand children and families who came down to enjoy the fun. Parties like this make you proud to be part of a community with such heart.
