Canterbury A and P show begins

From Morning Report, 7:36 am on 15 November 2023

It's all go at the Canterbury showgrounds Wednesday morning, as the gates open for the annual agricultural show.

More than a 100,000 people came to last year's three-day event, and organisers are aiming to top that this year with kids getting in free for a second time.

RNZ rural reporter Sally Murphy is at the showgrounds with Richard Lemon, an A&P show stalwart.

Murphy spoke to Corin Dann.
