Hungry for patrons

Parts of the city centre have been converted to 'pedestrians only' paths for the duration of the Hamilton 400 this weekend. Restaurant, café and bar owners have been rubbing their hands together for months in anticipation of the influx of tens of thousands of people wanting to patronise their establishments.

The manager of this café is also waiting for patrons. Many of these establishments have taken on extra staff to cope with the expected rush of people. Will their expectations be realised, or will they be disappointed?

It was a HUGE weekend. Some estimate the population of Hamilton doubled over the weekend!
