Gumboot at Taihape

Gumboots or Wellington boots are the icon of the small rural town of Taihape in the North Island of New Zealand. So much so that each Tuesday after Easter since 1985 they host Gumboot Day. This includes the famous gumboot throwing contest. This photograph shows a huge gumboot statue on the side of the highway. At about three metres high it is hard to miss it.
