11am – 5pm Monday 20 January 2014 – Wellington Anniversary Day
Costumes ready! Come on down and share your creativity! Or, just enjoy the wild and wacky dreams of others!

Flying into a harbour near you is the crazy Birdman Wellington, brought to you by Capital Productions, Forest & Bird and Wellington City Council. This is a fun family day out starting at 11am and finishing at 5pm, where you can enjoy Wellington’s wonderful waterfront against a backdrop of entertainment, stalls and of course the iconic Birdman Wellington Contest.
Spread your wings and explore your creativity. You could land yourself a fantastic prize and be crowned Birdman Wellington Champion 2014. Entries are open to individuals and teams, and judges are looking for fantastic costumes, dazzling showmanship and a big splash. Design a crazy flying costume and launch yourself off the specially-made “airstrip” on Taranaki Wharf.
Kids have a chance to shine, jumping from a floating platform for the “BirdKidz” junior Birdman Wellington contest at 11am.
You also have the opportunity to use your Birdman antics to raise much needed funds for Forest & Bird and other environment groups. There are great prizes up for grabs!
Bikes! Come and try bike polo (its crazy fun), the kids can ride around the wheels adventure area, and bring down your vintage, interesting, or stylish bikes to display for everyone to enjoy and talk about. Bikes are available to ride for the bike polo, and there will be a tournament for all comers from 3pm. The bikes area is Odlins Plaza.
There will be a whole range of fun and family-friendly activities to provide an entertaining day for all ages, including two excellent music stages, kids’ activities and rides, food, market stalls, and quality NZ crafts.
