“Almost every Aucklander has a special place in their heart for the Easter Show,” says Mark.
“This year we’ve really challenged ourselves to search out and bring the very best in family entertainment to Auckland, from both around the country and the world. And with free entry for children under 13, we’re expecting that Aucklanders will want to stay in town to visit the show – rather than fight gridlock to somewhere else!” he said.
