Text:9AM: Wellington's Civic Square is this morning being prepared for the city's annual gay and lesbian fair Out In The Square, which will usher in the AsiaPacific Outgames. The 26th year of the event will be officially opened by Mayor Celia Wade-Brown at 11am. She says Out in the Square is one of Wellington's more established summer events, “but it's by no means showing its age and remains one of our most cutting edge celebrations”. Wade-Brown says Wellington City Council is proud to support Out in the Square and is urging everyone to enjoy the party. Organisers say a record number of stalls have been booked for the all-day family event, while hot entertainment and delicious food will also be on offer. Out in the Square 2010 saw around 10,000 people throughout the day in Civic Square. Organisers are expecting hundreds of visitors from all over the world to bolster the crowd numbers even further. MetService is forecasting the current cloud shrouding the capital to break and allow sunshine to burst forth this afternoon, with a high of 19 degrees Celsius. It advises wearing one to two clothing layers and wearing sunscreen, plus keeping in the shade as much as possible between 11am and 5pm. Daily News staff - 12th March 2011
