Dave and John have run the Hororata Mechanical Swap Meet since 2010. Due to COVID 19, the Hororata Mechanical Swap meet has been cancelled 3 times so we are expecting a big turnout for 2022! Dave and John have joined forces with the Hororata Community Trust to bring you the event this year. All profits will be invested back into our community.

The Hororata Community Trust is excited to bring the Hororata Glow Festival to our community for the fourth time. Building on the past three events the Hororata Glow Festival promises to be even more spectacular in 2022.
The hot air balloon Night Glow will again light up the sky. Be amazed as these giant balloons glow in unison to music*. Prior to the Night Glow performance, people will be able to walk inside a giant cold inflated hot air balloon as well as interact with the balloon crews.
Surrounding the hot air balloons will be a magical festival where everything will GLOW!
The Hororata Glow Festival will host the best of Selwyn food and wine, attractions and activities. As well as offering a cultural feast with 40 different food vendors.
*the balloons do not leave the ground during the performance.
