If there’s one day in the year that you decide to go to the races, well you must make that day the Taranaki Daily News Family Fun Day.

A day at the races is that great Kiwi social experience where there’s something for everyone and with the Pukekura Raceway slap bang in the middle of New Plymouth, there’s no excuse not to get trackside to the Taranaki Daily News Family Fun Day.

If you’ve still got family around after Christmas or you need to get the kids out of the house, make sure you bring them all along with a picnic and join us trackside at the Pukekura Raceway. Simply bask in the sun while you feel the adrenaline rise as horses’ hooves thunder against the turf.

While the kids will love being adjacent to racing action, they won’t get bored between races either. We’ve got bouncy castles, colouring competitions and loads of other kids' activities.

Gates open 10am

If you want to really maximise your race day experience, we have two entertainment packages still available.

Poetic Prince Lounge
The Poetic Prince lounge is the mezzanine floor inside the grandstand. While there is no viewing directly from this lounge, there is direct access to the top of the grandstand (best viewing on the entire course). You’ll get:
• Entry
• Reserved area
• Race book
• Lunch
• Cash bar
• Tote
• Amenities

Crowded House Party Central
Crowded House Party Central is a shared marquee with direct access to all the adrenaline pumping racing action. Tell your friends and make sure you get your tickets now because tickets always sell out fast! $55 gets you:
• Entry
• Race book
• All day lunch
• Four refreshment vouchers (selection of beer, wine or non alcoholic)
• Tote
• Toilets
• DJ

This fantastic day will close to the sounds of the locally regarded Ash and Aidan.
