Otautau Pro­mo­tions or­ga­nized another great an­nual Otautau Car Show along­side lo­cal flower and craft clubs and other lo­cal com­mu­nity or­ga­ni­za­tions.

South­land’s Ford Fal­con Club has en­joyed a long as­so­ci­a­tion with the show, and it was pleas­ing to see the Otautau Car Show still so well sup­ported.

A quiet drive out west from In­ver­cargill this year saw 197 en­trants ar­riv­ing at Holt Park to en­joy live en­ter­tain­ment, food, and a host of stalls. Alan Sadler’s amaz­ing take on a 1949 Ford made its mark with the top show award, while Gra­ham Baird’s Ply­mouth Subur­ban scooped the run­ner-up slot and Peo­ple’s Choice award, adding to a long list of awards at shows over the past few years. Top Bike went to Ernie Tyler’s 2002 Boss Hoss and Top Com­mer­cial went to Colin Bai­ley’s Land Rover.

Con­tin­u­ing sunny con­di­tions en­cour­aged over 2000 peo­ple from around South­land to turn out for another en­joy­able coun­try event. With events such as wood chop­ping and plenty of com­pe­ti­tions for the kids, the show raised in ex­cess of $8K, with $7045 go­ing to the Christ­mas street pa­rade and $1K go­ing to the Otautau Plun­ket and Com­mu­nity Gar­dens projects.
