Altogether over 3000 visitors must have witnessed the carnival, a large proportion, as usual, being Maoris from all parts of Waikato.- The weather is keeping fine, although the aspect is rather sultry, and gloomy. Numerous other attractions are provided on the grounds, and side shows are doing quite immense business. Proceedings were opened by a canoe parade, m which seven large boats participated.
