The Waiuku Steel ‘n’ Wheels fes­ti­val is now only weeks away and prom­ises once again to be a great spec­ta­cle.

This show has some­thing for ev­ery­one.

Due to huge pub­lic de­mand we have brought back the po­lice dog demon­stra­tions. We will also have on show the new po­lice bomb ex­plo­sive suit and the Armed Of­fend­ers Squad along with other po­lice ser­vices.

This year is a first for the FMX Stunt mo­tor­bike team from NZ Freestyle who will be per­form­ing some amaz­ing stunts and get­ting some se­ri­ous air.

The pub­lic will have the op­por­tu­nity to get up close and per­sonal with the riders and have pho­tos and au­to­graphs with them.

We will have the amaz­ing Kuhmo rocket car fir­ing up, the V8 and Har­ley chain­saws on show along with fire brigade demon­stra­tions.

We have a great car­ni­val lined up for the kids and with the huge va­ri­ety of drag­sters, clas­sics, hot rods and ma­chin­ery on show - there is so much packed into four hours.

This year we have a great va­ri­ety of stalls with ev­ery­thing from crafts to t-shirts, dough­nuts to jew­ellery. There are 70 stalls in to­tal.

There is still time to reg­is­ter if you wish to ex­hibit your pride and joy. There is no cost to reg­is­ter­ing. Sorry, there are no place­ments left to book a stall.

The town cen­tre will be closed off from 7am as in pre­vi­ous years and the roads will re-open at 4pm sharp. You can still get around town by us­ing the loop roads either down Vic­to­ria Ave or the Con­sta­ble, Leonard and Court St loop.

View Road School has kindly opened its field up for pub­lic park­ing, it’s an easy stroll down the hill to the event area.

We have al­lo­cated some spa­ces by the St John Am­bu­lance head­quar­ters in Con­sta­ble Rd for dis­abled park­ing.

Please re­mem­ber to bring your gold coin en­try per per­son. It is only through gate-tak­ings, spon­sor­ship and grants that we can bring this great event to you.

We don’t want to have to charge hefty en­trance fees like other events, and by keep­ing it low this al­lows ev­ery­one in our com­mu­nity to come and share in the ac­tiv­i­ties and fun.

* The Waiuku Steel ‘n’ Wheels Fes­ti­val, April 29, 10am-2pm, Waiuku town cen­tre.
