Entertaining people waiting at the lights in return for donations is something new for Gisborne drivers, but for Emiliano, of Uruguay, it is one way to raise money to help pay for his holiday in New Zealand.

Emiliano says not all drivers had enjoyed his entertainment but many did.

He is in New Zealand for a working holiday and is loving his two-week stop in Gisborne.

He is doing all sorts of work and has a job on a farm here.

“Today they do not need me so I came to town to entertain the traffic,” he said.
