This iconic event is about to relaunch due to the support of Worley Parsons and the TSB Community Trust. The event is to kick-off a whole new tradition -
Taranaki’s biggest Mitre10 Mega Beach Water Fight!

Bring your Christmas water weaponry and unleash that COD soldier. Water pistols, Super Soakers, Aqua Blasters and Saturators or any sort of aquatic artillery is welcome but no dangerous objects allowed. Participants can also buy “fill-your-own” water balloons before the battle begins.
We’re not sure who wins, but we’re betting the wettest team loses. Enter at your own risk.

There will be a separate battle for the little ones (under 10) so they won’t have to worry

Along with the water fight, there will also be a water slide to try out.

Plenty of live music like: X Factor favourite, Tom Batchelor, school bands and The Slacks.

Old favourites include: Little Miss Taranaki and Mr Muscles contests for under 10 year olds and plenty of entertainment on the day including the Clelands Construction Children’s Play Zone, a water slide and The Big Dig.

There’ll also be, helicopter rides, plenty of great international food, Mikes craft beer, IRB demonstrations and much more.
