Tokomairiro A and P Show 'absolutely awesome'

The outgoing Tokomairiro Agricultural and Pastoral Show president Dean McCrostie called Saturday's show "an absolutely awesome day".

Mr McCrostie thanked the show committee and all who helped behind the scenes.

Show secretary Bronwyn Woodhead said there was a good crowd, good stock entries and quality trade and craft stalls.

One highlight was mini-digger driving, co-ordinated by Melvin Johnstone and Murray Lloyd.

For others, there was a competition to extract a tennis ball from a bucket and place it on top of a road cone.

"The Magic Guy", Wayne McEwan, of Invercargill, provided a show in itself.

Milton Playcentre ran a cute-baby competition. Playcentre spokeswoman Shayne Dale said Annabelle Cameron won the 0-2 years, and Daiha Lowlor the 2-5 years category.

The terrier race, after the grand parade, was enthusiastically run with about 12 dogs chasing a rabbit carcass towed behind a quad-bike.
