The Children's Big Dig was a hit with children at Papatowai Beach on the last day of 2014.

About 80 children scoured the sand for film canisters containing tickets for prizes.

The event in roughly its 20th year was one of a host of activities for families organised by the Papatowai and Districts Community Association for the New Year's Carnival at the beach.

The bonfire and fireworks are scheduled for 10.15pm tonight
