FREE Entry to the Coca-Cola Easter Show 2014

FREE Entry to the Coca-Cola Easter Show 2014

With a massive line-up of entertainment, circus acts, rides and exhibits, plus an A&P Show that has been running for more than 160 years, the Coca-Cola Easter Show holds a special place in the hearts and minds of New Zealanders.

And this year is no exception, with FREE ENTRY to the public for the first time ever, the return of the BIG RIDES from Mahons Amusements, four huge halls of prize winning livestock and five full days of cultural entertainment that spans the globe.
ASB Showgrounds CEO Mark Frankham says the decision to make entry to the show free for the first time in the show’s history was an easy one.

“We really want to make this show as accessible to as many people as possible,” says Frankham. “By removing that initial charge of entry to the show I believe we’ve done just that,” he says.

An iconic Auckland event, the Coca-Cola Easter Show is all about bringing town and country together for five days of non-stop family entertainment.

Visitors can go from watching sheep dog trials to watching a high-energy act on the Flava Fresh Main Stage, to then seeing street performers perform their unique shows while wandering through the busy marketplace, then grabbing a bite to eat before hitting the scream-your-lungs-out rides and topping it all off with a spectacular fireworks show at the end of a very big day!

“With a show of this size, families are hard pressed to see everything we have to offer in just one day, so with a free gate they’re able to come back each day of the event to maximise their Easter holiday enjoyment,” says Frankham.

An essential feature of the Coca-Cola Easter Show in 2014 is the celebrated Zirka Circus which returns with five shows a day that will have the audience of the edge of their seats.

Also this year in celebration of the LEGO® MOVIE coming to cinemas April 17, Warner Bros. Pictures are giving people the chance to meet the star of the LEGO® movie, Emmet at the show between 12.30pm – 2.30pm daily!
