The 129th Palmerston-Waihemo A and P Show is expanding, thanks to a report in the Otago Daily Times.
Next Saturday's show is promising to be a vintage event in more ways than one, with square dancing tractors, vintage baling demonstrations and the 1981 Leyland bus which will bring passengers from Dunedin.
An influx of new young committee members followed an ODT article seeking assistance for the committee and that had allowed the show to expand, society president Gay Mills said.
Interest in the show had been high. Demand was such that at one point show schedules had temporarily run out.
Last year, there were fears the show might have to be reduced.
Entertainment will include "tractor square-dancing" by a group from the Tapanui Vintage Machinery Club, supported by the East Otago Vintage Machinery Club.
A baling demonstration using vintage equipment will be given in the main ring by the East Otago vintage machinery club.
Tractor games will also be staged by the club.
The Palmerston Saturday farmers market will move to the showgrounds for show day.
