Brooke King (12), of Invercargill, cools off with an ice cream  at the Wanaka A&P Show yesterday. Fine weather drew  thousands of  people to the big show’s first day,  where the temperature  hit 25degC in the late afternoon.

By the end of today  it is expected more than 40,000 people will have  come through the gates.

Along with the traditional show attractions, people were treated to two shows from  Topp Twins Lynda and Jools. Events  today  include the wood-chopping competition  at 10.30am and the Jack Russell race at 12.30pm.

With the general  election little more than six months away, both  Prime Minister Bill English and New Zealand First leader Winston Peters will be at the show today trying to win over the voters. Pictured right:  Julia Eden, of Balfour, gives Nadia the purebred South Devon  heifer some love and attention at the show yesterday.

● Your Monday ODT  will have full coverage of the 2017 Wanaka Show.
