Click here and check out all the trails that came into Patearoa in 2020. (As soon as we have the trails into Twizel we will put them up here – for now this is just to give you an idea of what Cavalcade trails are like- even though each year they go over completely new ground)
If you cant make it onto a trail you should still get to Twizel for the grand parade and days entertainments – always great fun and well worth while!
What use is the Cavalcade you may ask? Well, quite apart from the ENORMOUS social, cultural, and spiritual benefits it brings to the participants… the Cavalcade injects significant funding annually into small rural communities and in particular small rural clubs and groups! See the 2019 economic impact report of the Cavalcade into Hawea here.
