The event will also feature a tugof- war, an eating competition, music and spot prizes throughout,-
for Drysdale said.
He said the event would have DJs this year instead of a band.
The DJs are Tobias Henderson and Aidan O’Malley.
The event is sponsored by the Ministry of Youth Development, Matamata- Piako District Council, Starfish Social Services, Matamata Rotary and Matamata Lions.
‘‘ We are hoping to get more local business sponsors for things such as spot prizes, so there will be more to come,’’ Drysdale said.
