Waitangi Day 2015 Montage - Online Extra

By Te Ao Māori News

Crowds of thousands from all over the country united today in Waitangi to celebrate the 175th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty.

Manuhiri who descended onto Waitangi enjoyed a day full of activities, performances, exhibitions and hundreds of stalls offering up great kai and unique items.

Te Waka Huia took to the stage to perform, and this morning spectators were treated to an impressive performance by the kaihoe waka, while local children practised their water bombs off the bridge to the Treaty grounds.

The Te Kāea online team compiled a short montage of some of the events that took place today and while the weather served up some surprises, it didn’t dampen the spirit of the day
