During the Labour Weekend Games in 1955, a day out is taken at Waihora Park Domain, in Motukarara. The day involved socialising and catching up with old friends, lots of food, fireworks, and rock and roll dancing! Running races follow, including some novel versions of sack-race running, and a group-three-legged race.
