Another fine day, another record crowd; it must be the Wanaka A&P Show.

Now said to be the second biggest in the South Island after the Canterbury show, the Wanaka event drew a record crowd of about 10,000 on day one yesterday and organisers believe they are heading for another record today.

A record 430 exhibitors are supporting the show this year, some travelling from as far north as Auckland.
