The Pukekohe Show amping up

The 2018 Counties Power Pukekohe Show is coming to town this February, boasting a big year of shows, activities and interactive displays.
This year the show has a name change, and will also be hosting a heap of new events.
Richard Holst, president of the Franklin Agricultural and Pastoral Society, says he is excited about this year’s show and the new partnership with Counties Power.
“The Counties Power Pukekohe Show is where town meets country, but it’s more than that this year.”
It has all the crowd favourites, including sheep racing, Counties Strongman and Axemen, as well as animals and home industry.
“There’s a set programme this year, so you can see what’s on and check out a range of events.”
There will be food, entertainment and displays including those from Police, Pukekohe Fire Brigade, Army and Auckland Museum who are coming along with their mobile cenotaph.
“We’ve changed the layout, so there’s more seating, more flow and people can be closer to the action,” Richard says.
The Counties Power Pukekohe Show will be held at the Pukekohe Showgrounds, Station Road, on Saturday 17 February and Sunday 18 February.
Registrations are open for home industry and animal categories.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
