On Saturday in Dunedin the annual Cadbury Jaffa Race was held.
The crowd was a little less than usual but the race still raised $73,000 for local charities.
The event was the first since it was confirmed the Cadbury factory in Dunedin would close early next year, putting hundreds of people out of work.
It also had to be postponed from its usual July date because of bad weather that caused flooding in Otago.
This year there were three Cadbury Jaffa Races with up to 25,000 Cadbury Jaffas in each race.
The Jaffas are release at the top of Baldwin Street, the steepest street in the world.
The race has been held since 2001 and has raised more than $600,000 for charities.
Jaffas have been made in Dunedin since 1931, and New Zealanders consume an average of 66,000 of Jaffas a day!
