Murrays Bay is well-known by the North Shore people for the attraction of its wharf which has always been popular amongst young and old for the ritual of fishing from it, jumping off it, mooring at it, or just taking a leisurely stroll along it.

During the ‘Birdman Festival’, Murrays Bay will be celebrating the opening of their bigger, better and grander brand new wharf - wharf number three - over 100 years after the first wharf in Murrays Bay was erected back in 1916.

This exciting spectacle is going to be a fun-filled day of food stalls, life entertainment, dress-up activities and a street parade for the young ones where they can show off their precious designs, followed by a display for the not so young ones (15 and over) of their daring and amazing flying - or maybe not so flying! - objects before these become unrecognisable when they finally make their attempt at becoming the Murrays Bay Birdman Champion by flying or jumping off the wharf.

Organisers tell us that to win the Murrays Bay Birdman Champion Trophy they want to see the wildest wackiest innovative creation and see who can fly the furthest on the day.

Murrays Bay Birdman Festival, it’s going to be a big fun filled day. Programme of events:
- 10:30 - Entertainment
- 12:00 - Speech, Kapa haka group and Powhiri
- 12:20 - Combined Children’s Parade and Birdman Parade
- 12:45 - Watch the Birdman jump
- 2:00 - Prizegiving
- 2:30 - Further entertainment until event closes at approx. 3:30pm

So calling all children young and old to join us for our Nautical themed children’s dress up parade held prior to the official Birdman jump. Pirates, mermaids, fish and other sea friends are all welcome on the day to join in the fun and show off their creations in Murrays Bay’s main street parade. A gold coin donation as an entrance fee to support charity would be appreciated.

We hope to see you all there on the day!
