Flying gumboots will be seen across the district in the next couple of weeks as the Way2Go trailer brings Kiwiana-themed games and activities to local parks and neighbourhoods.

The circuit commences with a double header this Sunday in Motueka and Takaka, before stopping off at a few spots across the region over the following two weeks.

The two-hour sessions feature competitions to determine who can throw the gumboot the furtherest, as well as  Wacky Relay Races which has teams of two competiting in wheelbarrow, 3-legged and sack racing disciplines. 

A stack of Richmond Mall Vouchers will be given out at each session for longest throw and quickest around the race course, with a heap of spot prizes also available for those that simply give it a go.

A range of other sports will be available to have a go at, including cricket, volleyball, soccer, hockey, badminton, as well as a monster obstacle course.  In Your Neighbourhood is free to attend and suitable for all ages and abilities.
