Locally today, hundreds of truckies shone up their tractors and assembled in one point for the annual "SPECIAL RIGS FOR SPECIAL KIDS"
procession. Each took a special needs child and their caregiver on a 3 hour trip through the centre of town and out to the airport via back roads for a feed, then back again.
Locals lined the streets and Dunedin was filled with honking horns and waving kids. The smiles on the faces of these kids give you a 'warm fuzzy', and some almost waved their arms off.
Each year the procession gets bigger and bigger, so "GO TRUCKIES".
