Lake Hayes A&P
The show that brings farmers and townies together...
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.
