More than a thousand school pupils from across the region descended on Queenstown this week, for the second annual Central Lakes Polyfest.
Pupils ranging in age from early childhood to eighteen took the stage in Queenstown to participate in kapa haka and Pasifika.
Numbers are almost double from last year, thanks to the enthusiasm of both teachers and pupils.
Polyfest has been running in nearby Invercargill for ten years, and attracts up to ten thousand pupils.
Which leaves organisers of the Queenstown-based event wondering if they've outgrown the venue.
