Mitre 10 Mega Ride in a Truck day is a biannual event, raising funds for local, non-government funded organisations focused on children.
This year's recipients are Bellyful and Little Elms.
A cavalcade of big rigs leave Napier and Hastings Mitre 10 Megastores, and convoy to T&G site in Whakatu. Tickets are sold for kids (of all ages) to ride in the trucks. Once all passengers are unloaded at T&G, truck rides continue around the T&G site, while the static trucks are parked up ready for judging. Food and entertainment continue throughout the day, with raffle draws and prize giving for truck show awards completing the action mid-afternoon.
We generally have in excess of 220 + trucks from all over the North Island including a few classics and a couple of vintage units. Also approx. 5000 – 6000 general public through the gates, for food, fun and all things Trucking!
