Slide, Cavalcade of Transport
A colour slide showing a float being pulled by a tractor. On the float is a waka and several people wearing piupiu and cloaks. This event was called a 'Cavalcade of Transport' and was part of the celebrations connected to Tauranga becoming a city in 1963. "A unique parade of transport through the last fifty years was staged to coincide with the historical exhibition at Tauranga Town Hall. The cars proceeded along Cameron Road from the racecourse and parked for an hour in Wharf Street where crowds of spectators were able to inspect the many interesting and valuable vehicles."
