The "sheilas" will be to the fore at this weekend’s Blueskin on Show event.

The drawcard event of Sunday’s A&P show and country fair, at Bland Park, Waitati, will be the "Toughest Chick in Town" contest.

Blueskin on Show will run from 10am to 4pm, with the Toughest Chick in Town contest at 2.30pm.

Contest co-ordinator Mandy Mayhem-Bullock hopes powerful southern women will flock to the show for the chance to showcase their all-round strength and skills.

The contest will be run in divisions, entitled "Powerhouse Pixies", "Vivacious Vixen", and "Iron Maidens", allowing women aged 16 years and over to participate.

Contestants will be expected to answer a few personality questions by way of introduction and perhaps belt out a verse of their tough chick tune.

After dazzling the judges, the competition will get under way with displays of skills, speed and strength expected.

The Blueskin on Show event will also feature a best-dressed dog competition at 10.30am, traditional children’s games all day, classic cars and machinery on display, food vendors, and car boot sales.
