Tamariki celebrated

Children and their families descended on Victoria Park in Thames on March 5 for the nationwide Children’s Day. The event, which was hosted by CAPS Hauraki, featured tug of war, train rides, a climbing wall, a mechanical surfboard, basketball hoops, face painting, and live music. Reporter GORDON PREECE headed along to capture the festivities.
