Yeehah! It's time to dust off your cowboy hat and shine your dancing shoes.

Plans are afoot for the Kumeu volunteer fire brigade hillbilly hoedown next month.

The brigade's footstomping fundraiser kicks off at Kumeu Showgrounds at 7.30pm on April 5.

Proceeds will go towards upgrading specialised equipment and the brigade running costs.

The hoedown has been an annual tradition for more than 15 years, brigade secretary Mike Hutchins says.

The Southern Cross Band with fiddle player Marion Burns will be taking the stage.

People can feast on the "famous Kumeu spit roast and we do our own special potatoes which everyone loves," Mr Hutchins says.

A skydive from 9000 feet with a 20-second freefall donated by Skydive Auckland will be auctioned.

A framed cricket shirt, signed by the Black Caps, will go under the hammer.

Punters can buy raffle tickets to win half a beast, wines and hampers.

Visit Kumeu Cellars in Kumeu Village, for tickets or phone Mike on 021 0820 5063.
