Kite Flying Day
Time & Location
About the Event
Kite day is the first event on the Mahi Aroha Calendar and an wonderful family event. It's held on the iconic Chateau Tongariro Golf course on new year's day and we are joined by the NZ Kite Flyers Association who bring along an awesome array of kites depicting dragons, sea creatures and much more. The photo opportunities on a fine day are spectacular. Project Tongariro also offers paper kite making kits for a gold coin donation. These have proved very popular and easy to fly. This year we have decided to try out a theme - one of ‘flight’. DOC will be sourcing life-sized displays of birds with interesting information and conservation messages. Kids will be encouraged to compare their arm spans with that of some iconic NZ birds.
If the decision to cancel the event is made, details will be posted on the Project Tongariro Facebook page and a message will be left on the Mahi Aroha information line 0800362 925.
