Treasure hunters, grab your spades - the chance to find hidden prizes at the annual Himatangi Beach Big Dig is coming up this weekend.

Himatangi's coastal community residents will line up alongside day visitors and holidaymakers to dig for buried beach booty on Saturday.

The annual fundraising event, sponsored by More FM, helps raise money for the Palmerston North Surf Life Saving Club.

More than 100 tags, corresponding with prizes, have been buried at the beach, and hopeful sand trawlers will have to race thousands of other hunters for the best prize.

Organisers are encouraging people to bring their buckets, spades and sunscreen to get behind the cause.

The big dig gets under way at 1pm and costs $3 per digger.
