Sauage Sizzle PHO2017-0007
There is nothing
more kiwi than the sausage sizzle, and at only 50 cents who could resist? The price
might have gone up since this photograph was taken, but the satisfaction of eating
piping hot sausages and half-cooked onion rings in white bread, topped with a
generous amount of tomato sauce, remains the same. This scene from one of the
annual Big Dig and Raft Race events at Ngāmotu Beach in New Plymouth evokes the
classic smells and tastes of summer.
The Big Dig
and Raft Race saw crowds of people enjoying the sun, digging for prizes and
racing on home-made rafts. Organised by the Egmont Lions Club, the event was a
way of fundraising for community projects including the playgrounds at Pukekura
Park and East End Reserve. The tradition continues today with a Big Dig held at
Ngāmotu Beach every year as part of the TSB Bank Festival of Lights.
