The Topp Twins delighted the large crowds which attended two performances at the 130th Palmerston and Waihemo A and P show on Saturday.
More than 2500 people saw the Topp Twins' first 45-minute show at 11.30am and a slightly smaller crowd attended their afternoon show at 3.30pm.
The Topp Twins helped one trade exhibitor put up his tent, inspected stock, handed out equestrian awards and signed autographs. They also judged the pet parade.
The show went smoothly despite a 45-minute power cut at 2pm, society secretary Heather McGregor said yesterday. The power cut was probably caused by a large number of food stalls cooking lunch for visitors at the show, she said.
The show expanded this year with some of the new trade and craft stalls being based on the closed-off Gilligan St in front of the show grounds and hall.
A bus service was provided from parking areas around Palmerston to the show. Hall entries were slightly down this year which was partly due to the recent dry spell, society president Gay Mills said.
