Central Otago Mirror - - WHAT’S ON -

A fun show for fam­i­lies, ex­hibitors and com­peti­tors will bring farm­ers and town­ies to­gether on Jan­uary 14.

For the 102nd time Lake Hayes, out­side of Queenstown, will be host­ing an A and P show, this time with new spon­sors on board.

Mini horses are back to the horse-rid­ing events in the show this year.

The wood­chop­pers make a re­turn, and Re­mark­able The­atre will present Panto in the Park.

Show jump­ing, sheep shear­ing, dog tri­als, trade sites, pet­ting zoos, car­ni­val rides and cir­cus en­ter­tain­ment will be a part of the day, along­side chil­dren and adults show­cas­ing their bak­ing, gar­den­ing and art and crafts skills.

This year the show has a new main spon­sor, Ar­row­town Life­style Re­tire­ment Vil­lage.

Vil­lage di­rec­tor Deb­bie MacColl said the show was a good fit for the com­pany as it was about bring­ing the com­mu­nity to­gether.

MacColl grew up with the show as a big part of her sum­mer, was a com­mit­tee mem­ber for eight years, and the first fe­male to be­come a pres­i­dent of the com­mit­tee.

The vil­lage will have a trade stand at the show, lo­cated next to the main stage.

The doors open at 7am, with food stalls open at 9am. En­ter­tain­ment be­gins at 10am, fol­lowed by a pa­rade at mid­day.

What: Lakes Hayes A and P show

Where: Lakes Hayes Show­ground
