A Splash Of Midwinter Fun

24 June 2009 - If you're brave, strong or fearless, then make sure you take part in Auckland City Council's annual Winter Splash event at Mission Bay on Sunday, 12 July from 10am to noon.

There will be entertainment and activities at Selwyn Reserve, including live music and a sausage sizzle, with the swim taking place at 10.30am.

There's a superhero theme for the swim this year, so come along in costume as there will be prizes for the best-dressed male and female.

Arts, Culture and Recreation chairperson, Councillor Greg Moyle, encourages those daring enough to take part.

"Winter Splash is a fun day out on Auckland's event calendar, so celebrate winter with your family and friends at one of our city's favourite beaches," says Mr Moyle.

Organisers of Winter Splash will implement a zero-waste policy on the day to reduce the amount of waste disposed in landfill.

Members of the public are encouraged to do their part for the environment by adopting a "pack in, pack out" attitude and take their waste home with them.

This year's event is supported by 91.8 MORE FM.
