Thursday 28th MARCH 2019, 5 PM - 9PM
The #LeadingTheCharge Great EV Road Trip will be passing through Rotorua on Thursday 28 March. This will be the kick-off event for the 5th Annual Road Trip in 2019, with special guests welcoming us and wishing us well.
Hosted by Rotorua Lakes Council and sponsored by Unison, the night markets are a regular event in Rotorua where the main street is blocked off to vehicle traffic and festooned with gourmet food stands, roving musicians and other interesting stalls. Road Trippers will have their vehicles on display right inside the markets at the Hinemoa Street intersection and dealer cars or volunteer test drive cars will be offering test drives within metres, at the intersection of Hinemoa and Tutankai streets (alternate sides).
3:30pm Set up for display vehicles
4:30pm Set up for Drives vehicles (Hinemoa Street)
5:00pm Markets open
6:30pm Road Trip opening speeches
7:00pm Whakarama Haka challenge
9:00pm Closing Time, display cars to leave 9-9:15pm
There will be no joint evening meal in Rotorua, as the markets are full of food everything from hangi to sweet churros. Though we will meet up before the markets begin, and our safety briefing will be at 4:30pm at the EV display area.
Come down to Te Manawa, the heart of the city, and welcome the start of the road trip as we head on to Wellington via Taupo. The Road Trip will then travel right around the South Island before returning to the north island via the east coast and finishes at Cape Reinga. It is a massive 40+ event, 31 day informational and experiential roadshow.
Bring your friends and family to the Unison Night markets 28th March, for a great night out and an electrical experience.
