Food and drink vendors There are several located in the car park near the house and in the orchard. High Tea can be booked in advance online for one-hour sessions at 10am, 12pm, 2pm and 4pm each day. High Tea is served outside under raincover and near the house.
Umbrellas for sale There are for sale, at $20 each, nice, good-quality pink umbrellas, some with the NZ Cherry Blossom Festival logo. Rain or shine, the umbrellas look good to walk around with. Sharing an umbrella with one’s partner under an umbrella in the rain in this magic wonderland is special.
There is a photographer available:

For all days of all years of the festival so far, it has never rained. September
is actually a low rainfall month. However, rain is always possible. The High Teas
are served under raincover. The performers have raincover and there are several
gazebos providing raincover to watch the performances from and/or eat while also
observing the cherry blossoms.
However, if rain persists, the fashion show on 2-Oct will be cancelled as dresses will be ruined by rain. The festival remainsopen however.
