The Opunake Beach Carnival has been going strong since the early 1990's.
Run by the Opunake Beach Committee with fabulous support from local businesses, the carnival hosts a range of activities including the Miss Opunake, Miss Teen and Mr Muscle competitions, quick-fire raffles, craft and food stalls and the Big Dig - where children dig in the sand to find a winning popsicle stick.
Entry is free, but there is plenty of opportunities to spend a little with food and craft stalls and activities set up around the field.
The Opunake Beach Carnival is a volunteer-led event with proceeds going either back into the event or towards beach development projects. The generous support of carnival-goers benefits the local community considerably - we look forward to seeing you this summer!
