Mitre 10 MEGA Ride in a truck day is an event where you can ride in a Big Rig from Mitre 10 MEGA Napier or Hastings and travel to Turner & Growers in Whakatu where a day of family fun is waiting.
Purchase the Mega Fun Pass for $5 with your convoy ticket and you can enter the MEGA Fun Shed where you can go for unlimited truck rides around Whakatu, jump on loads of bouncy castles, ride the mini cars and even have a go on Doug the Digger!

Come along and get up close to hundreds of trucks and check out the HB Excavators Competition and watch some very skilled drivers battle it out for the title, doing things you didn't know excavators could do!

If your up for a MEGA challenge get a team of 4 together to enter the Truck Pull Competition. All you have to do is pull a 4 tonne truck 40 metres. Great prizes up for grabs.

There's loads of food available including sausage sizzles, burgers, chips and cold drinks, or bring a picnic.

There's heaps of parking available inside T&G from the Anderson Road entrance for just a gold coin donation to Little Elms.

Bring the family out to Whakatu and enjoy a great day out.

Ride in a Truck Day is a bi-annual fundraiser that raises funds and awareness for Little Elms in Hastings. Little Elms provides accommodation to families from around the country who have family members who are being treated at Hawkes Bay Hospital. It means they can be close by to provide support and comfort - particularly if the patient is a child. They also provide families of child care patients from around the country use of a Holiday House to have some much needed "time out" from the rounds of tests and treatment that otherwise rule their live.

Mitre 10 MEGA, Trucking for Child Care & many other groups co-ordinate a massive day of fun starting with convoys of trucks that travel from Mitre 10 MEGA in Napier & Hastings

Convoy tickets available online or at MEGA Napier or Hastings. Tickets are $12 per person. Under 6s must be accompanied by a paying parent or guardian.
