Taupo Bay's Tractor Spectacular

For the third year in a row the residents and holiday-makers of Taupo Bay in the Far North celebrated their love of the humble tractor (not to mention their eccentricity) with a Tractor Spectacular. The December 30 event featured more than 40 tractors, a parade, a barbecue, lots of waterbombs and squirtguns, and prizes for most pimped, best decorated, most loved, best pre-1970 and best post-1970 tractors.
