Te Awamutu’s Pop ‘n’ Good Bike Park opening party hosted by Waipa District Council in March this year is up for an award.

The community event has been named one of six finalists in the Best Local Government event in the New Zealand Event Association awards​. It is up against Hutt City’s  Carnival of Lights, the Light up Bike Spectacle in Whanganui, Paint the Town Ed in Dunedin, Sort It Careers Expo in Manawatu, and Snow in the Park in Auckland.

The opening party in Te Awamutu attracted thousands of people, including 1,000 young children on bikes celebrating the opening of the much-anticipated park.

Waipa District Council staff organised the event and also supported it with close to 30 volunteers. The event organisation was led by Council’s event and marketing advisor Amber Diprose.

Award winners will be announced in March next year.
