The population of Palmerston rose by more than 200 to 1100  over Labour Weekend when 115 NZ Motor Caravan Association members rolled into town in a  range of vehicles.

The motor caravans for the "Bottom of the South" rally came from Ashburton to Invercargill and inland to Te Anau, the chairman of the Otago branch of the motor caravan association, Ken Foote, of Dunedin said.

The weekend was an opportunity to catch up with other motor caravaners, he said.

The Labour Weekend rally is run each year and has been held in Palmerston on several occasions.
