The Big Dig involves children searching for sticks buried in the sand which they then exchange for raffle tickets for the Grand Prize Draw of around 40 prizes – the more sticks they find the greater their chance of winning.
Proceeds from the event will go to Orewa Surf-lifesaving Club.
The event has become an iconic local tradition and the dig is complemented with a range of fun filled activities, including carnival games and rides, face painting, stalls, beach activities, local entertainment groups, tug-of-war and a variety of food stalls.
