Otago Taieri A&P show secretary Cate Edgler said the weather had improved on last year and that made for a perfect day out.
"It’s a great day out for the community to enjoy."
Enjoying her day was axewoman Sally Harrison, who participated in the woodchopping competition at the show.
The Dunedin woman was one of 17 woodchoppers competing.
She has been chopping wood for two years as part of the Otago Axemen’s Club, alongside her job as an engineer at Macraes Mine.
"I love it.
"It’s really good fitness, good for your stress levels and there are great people involved."
She participated in the underhand chop, which involved standing on a log and chopping from above.
"I loved that, so when the opportunity came up to get back into it I jumped on it."
While still "relatively new" to the sport, Miss Harrison was
looking forward to attending the South Island Woodchopping Championships in several weeks.
