Mighty March Carnival

Saturday 16 March 2019

The Waikanae School Mighty March Carnival is a huge day of fun for the kids!  The biennial event takes place this year on Saturday 16 March from 10am - 2pm.

  • Time trial – team up with mum, dad or your best buddy and get around the track as fast as you can
  • Most Creative – the sky’s the limit!

The competition will take place on the top field at 11.30am.
