It was a perfectly sunny Sunday morning and there quite a number of people who chose to rise and shine with the first Zespri SunGold Kiwifest being held at Desa Park City. It was definitely very happening considering the crowd and the long queues for some of the activities which Zespri SunGold Kiwi has dedicated for this positive and healthy morning for all ages!
I was there at 8.30am sharp but even then there were already loads of people and it was not so easy getting a car park…with the entry being free for all… I guess
My daughter however did not know whether she was freaked out or more amused by the Zespri SunGold kiwi slice mascot doing his rounds...she was laughing and also saying that it was weird mascot .... but I think he was pretty cute.. LOL
Everyone who came had to sign in to get their activity booklet, in which they could participate in games and get stamps and limited edition button badges ..
And well, the first 1500 who arrive with a Zespri SunGold Kiwifest leaflet found in Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit packs or signup email from Zespri were given exclusive Zespri BPA-free water bottles and that was of course a deal too good to miss out on, and so you can imagine the queue.... Blogger friend Rane Chin (http://www.ranechin.com) joins in the long queue....
The Zespri SunGold KiwiFest promised a health and fun morning with tons of positive activities! And that was what they delivered!!! There was the rolling Zespri Zorb ball, where you can go in and well, walk, run and the ball will roll....think of the hamster ball... this is the human ball.. LOL
Then there was the giant Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit carnival game to see how skillful or strong that our arm was....or how good our aim is..
...not forgetting the Zespri Giant Twister game which I spotted fellow blogger Eve's (http://www.mrsandmomma.com) kids having a riot there...
Selfie addicts as of course could to take memorable pictures with the pretty interesting life-size Zespri World cutouts which was found all over the area...
And, one of the more popular activities was of course, at the Zespri Smoothie bikes where you had to actually get on the bicycle, pedal and make your own smoothie! How cool was that right!!!
And well, who did not like freebies... among the freebies we got was a lovely refreshing bottle of Lean, Mean and Green cold-pressed juice from Life Juice, which contained kiwi, ambarella, green apple, chinese flowering cabbage , jicama and pineapple...which was rich in vitamin A and C, and promotes healthy eye sight and maintains healthy bones and teeth....and yes, to get this... the queue was long.... huhuhu
For the little Zespri fans, LeelaPass was brought in to conduct fun and interactive mass participation activities like colouring and even painting...
For the kids and also some of the adults that never grow up (eheemm,... like me) there was an enormous Zespri Colouring Wall to colour and draw and let your imagination run wild!
There was a free flow of savoury chicken meatballs in Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit salsa or the mouthwatering smoked sausages with Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit skewers (though I did not see any skewers so I guess they decided to do without it) to cater to all those who were feeling peckish before and after their adventures or gallivanting around the park or workout, ….. And there was the irresistible Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit tartlets which was just so yummy!
That was not all to the Zespri SunGold KiwiFest, the groovy DJ Irama who took over the DJ booth and she played a lively set of disco and house melodies that was just perfect for a daytime party.

This was followed by the lovely celebrity emcee, TV host and health enthusiast @Jojo Struys bringing the crowd through her own fitness-through-yoga session. I did not stay too long at the Zespri SunGold KiwiFest as it was quite hot and my daughter was not feeling too well and we had a wedding to attend...so thus borrowed/ hijacked pictures from google... hehehe
Her fans and other gym bunnies had their mats ready since 8am or so??? (just guessing, cause when I was there there were already sooo many yoga mats set up in front of the stage area)

I guess the highlight was Cassey Ho (USA) from @Blogilates, the #1 female fitness Youtube channel with more than 3 million subscribers, who was flown down all the way from Los Angeles who conducted a special 45 minute POP Pilates workout session that thrilled the crowd! POP Pilates brings together upbeat music and dance for a one-of-a-kind Pilates “dance on the mat” experience!
And it all ended with the lively and dynamic GTXperiment who brought their mix of hip-hop, jazz, pop, and alternative grooves to continuing invigorating the day and leave all the Zesprifest goers full of positivity.
There was of course a booth selling all those lovely Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit for a good price....
Afterall, having a Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit in the morning is one of the best things you can do for your health. With 3x the vitamin C of oranges, 10x the nutrition of apples, loads of antioxidants, and more than 20 essential minerals and nutrients, I highly recommend starting your day with one of these juicy and delicious Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit! I simply love it!!!
Perfect for keeping the whole family healthy the most delicious way...
