Originally conceived in France, the 'course des garcons de cafe' is now an internationally recognised event held in over 50 countries. The waiters' race involves wait staff representing their restaurant in a variety of different activities.
On Sunday it was Parnell's turn. The day kicked off with an egg and spoon race, an oyster tray race and a group challenge involving a precarious Eiffel tower of wine glasses.
In the end, Paris Butter from Herne Bay, took out the top prize! The waiters’ final, based on the traditional Parisian loaded waiter’s tray, was taken out by Loran Paulich of Paris Butter, who claimed top prize thanks to Renault New Zealand.
The day included a celebrity leg where New Zealand celebrities raced for their charity, including Bachelorette Chrystal Chenery, dancer Candy Lane and MP David Seymour.
The final included Maori TV's Billie Jo Ropiha, MPs David Seymour and Paul Goldsmith with David Seymour taking out the competition for his chose charity Lifeline.
