Night of fun at Vinegar Hill

Sat 31 Dec 2005 In: New Zealand Daily News

5:30PM: Hunterville's gay camp of the summer Vinegar Hill will have a new Queen crowned at 11:20 tonight, but until then it's still the reign of Ms Toni Farrow. Still recovering from yesterday's Queen's cocktail party, Farrow says she thinks she'll have enough energy for this evening's festivities, which start at 8pm with a bonfire. A range of shows will start at 8:30, including drag queens and kings, singalongs, and competitions – including Best Tits and Best Bums. Prizes will also be awarded for Best Campsite, Best Use of Technology and Lighting, and Miss Hospitality (also known as Camp Slut). Farrow describes the atmosphere as "very's very gay, very bright, there's heaps of gay flags flying, it's just stunning. The weather is hot, sunny, there's no wind and no rain." Farrow says there's between 250 and 300 people at the popular campsite ready to see in the New Year, with more still coming in.
