The Waikino community is celebrating the official opening of the Waikino Memorial Bridge tomorrow, Saturday March 1 and anyone is welcome.

Hauraki District Mayor John Tregidga will look after the formal side of the celebration and then a FAMILY RUN DAY OUT will get under way.

There will be food and drinks, entertainment from music legend Shona Laing ... yes Shona Laing will be performing!

Made in Waikino stalls will offer a variety of Waikino treasures.

There will be a lucky draw too!

Victoria Battery will be open to explore the museum, underground kilns and the Battery train will be offering rides.

You can even jump aboard an early bird train from the Waihi Railway Station to travel out to Waikino.

Make sure you take along a gold coin donation and something extra to cover anything that might tickle your fancy to buy or try.
