Wanaka is ready for the big show.
The tents are up and the animals in all ready for the first day of the Wanaka A&P Show today.
Event manager Jane Stalker said she was hoping for a crowd of at least 40,000, which would equal last year's total.
Organisers and volunteers were busy yesterday making sure everything was in place for the opening day of the show today.
''It would be great to get over 40,000 and with the weather looking decent there's no reason why we won't get more.''
About 450 trade stalls and exhibits had reserved sites at the show this weekend.
Mrs Stalker encouraged people travelling to the show from outside Wanaka to take advantage of the free park-and-ride service near the Wanaka Lakes Health Centre in Cardrona Valley Rd.
''Everything is all go - it's going to be a great two days,'' she said.
