This year’s Royal Easter Show on from 1–5 April features never before seen in New Zealand shows, Ben 10 Live and Yo Gabba Gabba! direct from the Cartoon Network and Nickleodeon!
Ben 10 Live is a super-charged live show with mass age appeal. Based on the cartoon network’s series Ben 10, the Ben 10 Live stage show is a once in a lifetime opportunity for kids to get up close and personal with their favourite characters as seen on TV and help fight evil forces.
Yo Gabba Gabba! i like to dance, as seen on tv, is an urban-inspired live stage show. Fans of this super-fun series will love singing and dancing to popular songs like hugs are fun and get the sillies out. With all the toy monsters there: Muno, Foofa, Plex, Todee and Brobee, this is great entertainment especially for young ones.
On at the ASB Showgrounds, Auckland, the Royal Easter Show is New Zealand’s largest and most varied family festival.
The A&P show brings the country to town with its animal displays and competitions. The animals vary daily with everything from beef cattle to rabbits. Also back by popular demand are the Royal Easter Cat Show and Chelsea and her star dogs.
A new addition is sheep n show, a shearing show with a difference. Top shearers from around New Zealand will again compete for top titles in the Royal Easter Show shears.
There's plenty of horsing around with the rough rider equestrian stunt team in the arena and Royal Easter Show equestrian competition at neighbouring Alexandra Park.
And if that’s not enough to satisfy your animal fun, farm world offers kids of all ages the chance to get up close to farm animals with new interactive activities, like learning how to milk a cow and make butter!
The famous Royal Easter Show art awards, New Zealand’s largest art show, features hundreds of artworks from throughout New Zealand and on sale for the duration of the show. Other features of the art pavilion include the working artist displays, face painting by award winning Carmel McCormick and hands-on art activities for the kids.
There’s more thunderous fun in the arena with the Hauraki Battle of the Bushmen where the chainsaws dance and wood chips fly.
The super-charged carnival is back with its rides and stalls. Serious carnival junkies can put their adrenalin meter into overdrive with “midnight madness”, a special offer getting you unlimited carnival rides between 9pm and midnight on Saturday 3 April for the great price of only $40 per person.
With all the action, animals, fun and entertainment on offer, it’s not hard to see why the Royal Easter Show is one of New Zealand’s most loved family events.
