Flying into a harbour near you is the crazy Birdman Wellington. 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, music, and of course the iconic Birdman Wellington Contest. This year's theme is PIRATES!
Spread your wings and explore your creativity. You could land yourself a fantastic prize and be crowned Birdman Wellington Champion 2015. Participation isopen 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. Jumping starts from 1pm; the BMX flip ramp will entertain from noon.
There will be a whole range of fun and family-friendly activities to provide an entertaining day for all ages, including excellent music stages, kids’ activities and rides, lots of food, and a range of market stalls. See below for more details of creative activities!
Music. Due to funding constraints at this year's Birdman, there will be no main stage acts. Any fully self-contained creative acts are welcome to contact us and arrange a spot at the event.
Cardboardbox Land. We'll have the cardboard, tools and tape; you bring any ideas, and we'll make up a creative storm of castles, ships, masks, costumes, forts, rockets, and whatever else takes our fancies! Artrageous fun for kids and parents. Pirates will be a theme for the day!
Giant Chess. First we'll make 'em in Carboardbox Land, then the Chess Wizard will play anyone who steps up!
Stiff Card Engineering. See whether there is an engineer in you capable of constructing an architectural edifice from only stiff card!
Prizes, for best kids', and adults', cardboard constructions!
Pirates on the Main! Well, in the Lagoon, anyway. Watch out landlubbers, they'll be looking to make land and steal your bootie! Craziness and mayhem is sure to ensue.
Keep checking this site for updates. Thanks ZM for being so cool and helping us to be creative!
