As the morning was dull and cold there was not a very large attendance in tbp early part of the day; but in the afternoon the sun came out brightly and a large number ,of vi?itors came down. The Mayor, rMr G Armstrong, brought a party over from Akaroa in one of Mr Pil Irington's cars, and a number of other > Akaroa, people walked. The children had their sporte, and every child went home with one or more toys. Messrs R. Herriot, W. Bbadbolt, W. M. Kearney, H. Odell and others worked hard to get the events off, and give the children an enjoyable time; •> Shortly after 4 p.m. an adjournment s was made to the school, where a 1 sumptuous tea was laid out for all ' comers, The German Bay people - spared no effort to see that all the 3 wants of visitors were supplied, and if ' .anyone was not well served, it was not ! ' the fault of the ladies and gentlemen who assisted. The Mayor, Mr G. Armstrong, spoke a few wordg to the children and adults.
