On the carousel:
The champ in action.
Real lumberjacks demonstrate the art of staying upright.
USA wins the pole climb by a good two lengths.
Not so much a victory lap as a victory plank.
Massed clydesdales, with a big rig of yesteryear bringing up the rear.
Horsepower to spare: The solo clydesdale sledge.
Shearing his way to second place.
The winner, Corriedale Senior Machine section.
Canterbury shearing's finest.
Political showgoers: Christchurch Central MP Brendon Burns and Labour Leader Phil Goff.
Down with the kids.
Always superior, no matter what the circumstances.
The scream machine.
The big wheel in a high wind, look at those poplars bending.
