After a Covid-19 delay for Dunedin’s Special Rigs for Special Kids, the event finally returned to the streets of greater Dunedin.

The impressively coordinated event was again led by Dunedin’s Greg Inch and his remarkable committee.

It was all familiar stuff – happy kids, happy parents, grandparents, caregivers and, of course, those unsung heroes in the form of truck drivers and their trucks. Crane trucks, loggers, street sweepers, livestock trucks, fire engines and even buses all ensured that children were ferried around the route.

A special mention must go to the Dunedin City Council and Fulton Hogan for making sure that the main street of Green Island was passable despite significant roadworks.

It’s a fabulous day, the popularity of which never seems to diminish. One can only imagine how big the 30th event, planned for 2023, will be.
