Waihi's 80th A & P Show opens its gates this Saturday

Posted 6 November 2018 by Gold FM in Music, Entertainment, Events and Podcasts

Brian Gentil spoke to Marilyn Parker, the Secretary of the Waihi A & P Show about Waihi's 80th Agriculture and Pastoral Show which is opening its gates to the public this Saturday.

The outbreak of Mycoplasma bovis has created problems for more than farmers as A & P Shows around the country take on board the need to avoid the spread of the disease and leave cattle and cows out of events this year. There will still be plenty happening at this year's Waihi A & P Show though. 

Marilyn talked about the popular children's petting zoo, horse eventing, the displays, llamas, roaming magician and other happenings, including the side saddle period costume category. 

There is still time to enter especially for the children's lamb and kid goat sections. Marilyn can be contacted by emailing [email protected] or calling her on 07 863 8243.
