Well it’s a little quiet event wise round Rangiora this weekend.  There’s the Kaiapaoi Farmers market on Saturday morning and up in Amberley there’s  a craft market on Saturday morning.  Also, it’s the first weekend of a new exhibition – Earth, Water, Fire and Ice –  at the Artist’s Eye Gallery on Kippenberger Avenue.
