All Ages

110 years ago a bit of drizzle had the politicians postponing the opening of the Rangitikei River bridge at Mangaweka. Postponed to March 7, 2015!

A fun look at our pioneering history and the impact the Mangaweka Bridge has had on our wider community.

An important link for the early settlers to reach their markets, the bridge has made a major contribution to Agriculture, Horticulture, Tourism and the social aspects of our community for over 110 years.

Join with us and celebrate our pioneers as we finally officially open the Mangaweka Bridge.

Gates open at 11am
Displays of pioneering life, food, games and vintage and classic cars and machinery.
Official Bridge Opening at 1pm

Make it a day trip and cruise on up to the New Zealand Gumboot Throwing Championships in Taihape from 2pm onwards
