Tractors have a special place in Mangawhai’s history because of their involvement in the Big Dig of 1991, when men and their machines saved the harbour by building a lengthy bund wall to plug the huge gap in the sandspit which had been devastated by various storms including Cyclone Bola in 1987.

Tractors ancient and modern, massive and diminutive, and stationary engines will be on display with generous prizes donated by Norwood Farm Machinery Centre. Ride on mower races promise to be a lot of fun. Open to the public, entry is by donation.

Event Description:
The Event will start at 9:30am with a Tractor Cavalcade from the Fishing Club in Alamar Cres at Mangawhai Heads travelling along Molesworth Drive to the Mangawhai Domain. Here they will be piped in by the Waipu Pipe Band.

A panel of expert judges will pick winners based on their up-keep, general appearance and performance. Winners will receive generous prizes donated by Norwood Farm Machinery Centre.

Veterans of the 'Big Dig' will accompany the cavalcade and be on hand at the photographic display to recount their experiences in battling beaurocracy to save the Mangawhai harbour from stagnation.

Food with hot and cold drinks will be on sale (cash only, no EFTPOS).
