Numbers were down at yesterday's Go Otago event, but an organiser called it a success.

Director Victoria Bunton said a combination of weather, and competing events, probably accounted for a sparser crowd.

Held at the Taieri A and P showgrounds every two years, the event celebrates Otago Anniversary Day, displaying the region's food, entertainment, art, craft, culture, music and business.

Miss Bunton noted a good turnout by stall-holders and other participants.

She was especially pleased with the new Bikes For Fun activity, which encouraged children to try "weird and wacky" bikes.

The weather remained fine, despite the dicey outlook, she said.

The day's takings and event numbers were yet to be tallied, Miss Bunton said.
