Hop along to the annual Manggawhai Domain Summer Gala on 2 January to enjoy live music, fun rides, market stalls, food and drinks, quick fire raffles, dog shows, and lots more!
Rides include the Pirate Bouncer, Fortress Slide, Bouncer Maze and Cannonball Blasters. Adventurous older children can enjoy the 4 in 1 Bungy and Land Zorbs for $8 per ride. More than 200 stalls will offer a large variety of crafts and artworks for indoors and out, clothing, a range of local produce and much more.
A range of food and drink will be sold, and seating is available upstairs in the main building along with hot and cold drinks. The dog club will perform a number of shows throughout the day, and children can participate in the last show. This is an opportunity to see how agility works by watching the dogs negotiate the equipment. A helicopter will be offering rides, and the Mangawhai Volunteer Fire Brigade and Mangawhai St John Ambulance are attending and offering valuable information that could help save a life one day.
All funds raised will go to support the Domain, owned by the Mangawhai community and home to many sports groups and social groups. The gala is the Domain's only fundraiser and all proceeds are used to pay for operating expenses, improvements, and to keep hireage fees reasonable for everyone in the community.
