But while the event conveniently coincides with the Blossom Festival, the Town Criers have important work to do while they are in Alexandra.
This includes competitions in the Alexandra Catholic Church, Roxburgh Theatre and Cromwell Presbyterian Church over a week.
In between times, they will also attend a mayoral reception, as well as making visits to schools, rest homes and Maniototo.
Their time in Alexandra also involves a lot of practice, with each Crier having had to prepare three cries ready for judging. Topics included Gold - the theme of the event, their home town and the third on their personal sponsor.
