If you are interested in things mechanical, the North Otago A & P show, with many local and national machinery and vehicle dealerships in attendance, is a must to visit.
There will be numerous sites with everything for the farm from motorbikes to massive four wheel drive tractors. With these vehicles, are the different types of implements that are a must for farmers or would-be farmers to look at, but also of interest to the nonfarming community.
Viewing this type of exhibit will give a good idea about the type of plant and machinery that modern day farming requires. It may also give young people a few ideas about where they see their future.
In addition to the farm vehicles, local car dealerships are usually represented, making it a good opportunity to have a look at the latest road vehicles without having to visit every dealership in town.
