Bite Nite to deliver a tasty helping of food and fun for district

Ashburton Youth Council’s popular Bite Nite event is back again for a second helping.

Youth Council co-chair Artem Kravchenko says, Bite Nite, which will take place on 26 September, has been in the planning stages for the past few months and is hoped to be even bigger and better than last year.

Hundreds of people descended upon Baring Square East for last year’s inaugural event - which helped raise funds for 24/7 Youth Work. 

This year, the entertainment will be headlined by Kiwi singer Jamie McDell who has two top 10 albums, a New Zealand Music Award, and hundreds of thousands of social media followers to her name. Jamie will be performing songs from her latest album “Extraordinary Girl” along with some of her other hits. A number of local singers and dancers will also take to the stage. 

“We’re super excited to have Jamie on board and hope the community will come down for a great night out,” says Artem.

“Ashburton Youth Council are passionate about supporting local youth organisations, like 24/7 Youth Work, who were our fundraising recipients last year. This year we are raising funds for the Mid Canterbury Boxing Academy, which helps young people learn life skills and personal development through boxing.”

Food trucks will again line the square to serve up some great treats and street food, and a photo booth will be on site for everyone to snap and print photos to remember the night.

Bite Nite will run from 5.30pm until 8.00pm at Baring Square East on Wednesday 26 September. Entry will be a gold coin donation with all funds raised going to support youth organisation, Mid Canterbury Boxing Academy.
