The 53rd annual show attracted people from all over South Otago to experience the community spirit of the Clutha Valley.

The event had its classic flowers on show provided by entries from locals, alongside a variety of photos, giant vegetables, preserves, artwork, crafts and more.

Organising members Adele Byers, Natalie Tunnah and Julie Williams said the event was a "great success" and that they were proud of the valley for getting "great feedback" each year.

"We take pride in hosting our flower show," Ms Byers said.

"It is a very social day and people of all ages are included." 

The event had a presentation evening to celebrate local talents.
