Steel ‘n’ Wheels on its way
Waiuku Town Manager Sharlene Druyven updates readers on Waiuku Business and Development Association activities.
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.
