Welcome to Showtime Canterbury 2002!

As always there will be something for everyone in this year's most popular regional festival, Showtime Canterbury!

Kicking off with the launch of The Showtime Canterbury Painted Horses - a uniquely special public art project, where life-size thoroughbred models are transformed into a work of art. Beginning on 1st November, they will be joined by the crazy Celebrity Sulky Race, entertainment, and farm animals - all in Cathedral Square!

Later in the festival, the country comes to town with the A & P Show, the glamour and excitement of horse racing returns with the Canterbury Draught New Zealand Trotting and Galloping Cups, Guineas Day, Ladies Day and Show Day, when Addington and Riccarton Raceways come alive with fashion, and a chance for a flutter!

The Meridian Energy Fireworks Extravaganza promises an explosive night at New Brighton, with the most exciting, and safe, fireworks show in town, preceded by terrific family entertainment.

All this, plus many more events with a Canterbury flavour!

See the Event Calendar for a full list of events by day. Many events are also listed on www.bethere.org.nz
