The first Saturday in October is the annual Kaikoura sea fest. A day when the pacific plate drops and there is a huge under water trench that opens up. Huge sea mammals like whales and dolphins come for the feast and the city is packed with tents serving fresh seafood, music concerts and ample CrayFish (what the locals call Lobster's).
