The team at Waihi Beach Community Events & Promotions know how much locals and visitors to Waihi Beach love their four-legged friends, and so we had planned to bring you a wonderful family dog show.  Under the current circumstances, this can not go ahead.

However, we’d still love to feature all the lively and happy dogs and dog-lovers at Waihi Beach and so are holding two fun competitions:

  • Amateur Dog Photo competition
