Scenes from the Fair at Omakau
On the inland loop to St. Bathans we come across a tiny delightful country fair. In some ways it is like our fairs but in other ways it was very different.
There are exhibitions of "flower pictures" and novelty sculptures from vegetables and fruit.
On another page you can hear how their "parade" is actually a moving advertisement with robust commentary on the attributes and deals on the new tractors, trucks and machinery parading by to the sounds of pipers from the neighbor town Alexandra.
The pictures of country nudes are from a local farm group calendar.
Mark Skelton was the source of sheep information I had been looking for - hear his report on another page.
