What Whangārei events are hit by coronavirus?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

Whangarei’s immensely popular Fritter Festival - planned for March 28 -has been cancelled because of concerns about coronavirus. The organisers are disappointed but believed the event would not have been allowed to go ahead, while headline acts Katchafire (pictured) and ManaLion would have been in self-isolation on the date.
