Brian Gentil spoke to Marilyn Parker, Secretary for the Waihi A & P Show, to find out how preparations are going for the 2019 event.

Marilyn said the show is on target with just over a week to go before gates open on Saturday, November 16.

You may still be able to twist Marilyn’s arm to get a stall, if you’re quick.

The Schedule is out for those wanting to enter the variety of events happening.

Marilyn said, while you can enter on the day - it saves time and would be helpful if you can enter earlier.

Get your entries in for the kid goat and pet lamb events which children as young as pre-school can participate in.

There are categories for novice through to experienced in the equestrian events and there’s even a period dress for Side Saddle this year and a costume class for the Arabian Horse.

A Roaming Magician, Petting Zoo, Grand Parade, Pony & Donkey Rides and a prize draw at 2.30 are some of the things you can see and do on the day. You must be at the draw to claim the prize.

Try out the Hobby Horse and Gumboot Throwing and enjoy all the fun and sights and sounds of the 81st annual Waihi A & P Show next Saturday.
