A District Facility with Loads of Potential

10 March 2010

The Northern A & P Association owns the showgrounds in the north-east of Rangiora.  Since 1866, Shows have been held here, only interrupted by World Wars.

The Association is looking at ways their land can be better utilised and to this end have developed a strategic plan to increase the variety of activities able to take place there.

The showgrounds are well known, of course, not only for the Shows but also as a rugby ground and the location of events such as traction engine rallies and the annual muscle-car show.

The showgrounds are a great asset for the Waimakariri District with a huge potential to generate visitors and to provide a focus for the community.

Rangiora became today, has been its annual custom for a few years now, petrol-head heaven .  Hot Rods, custom cars and beautiful restorations are featured this weekend at the showgrounds.  As you might gather from the two photos, I’m a bit of a Ford man myself.
