Bondi celebrates the golden fruit
Mangoes may just be the best thing about summer. Luckily for all lovers of the tropical treat, North Bondi Surf Life Saving Club is hosting Mango Mess-tival, their one-day festival entirely for honouring the delicious fruit and supporting the local Nippers program.
Whether you like them in a drink, barbecued or simply as they are, there will be many mangoes available for your indulgence on the day. National growers will be donating varieties to sample. You can watch the Nippers compete in mango-based challenges, or get involved in the action and challenge them in a mango eating competition. See a fruit carver create interesting flowers from the mangoes or take a spin on the bike-powered smoothie machine.
Whilst you participate in all the mess-tivities, the NBSL hopes to raise funds through donations during the event.
