Marching into Porirua
Porirua City is to host the New Zealand Marching Championships next year. The event will be held in Porirua for the first time, at Te Rauparaha Arena, from March 13 to 15. Up to 50 teams, competing in four grades – under 12, under 16, senior and masters – will take part. A dedicated organising group comprising both marching and non-marching personnel has been formed and it has started planning the event. Among activities that are being considered is a street march of competitors through central Porirua.
