PROUD: An alpaca at the National Expo on this weekend.

New Zealand's top alpacas are strutting their stuff in Christchurch this weekend as part of the National Alpaca Expo.

The three-day event at the Canterbury Agricultural Park, which ends today, has attracted 300 entries for the breed section and 110 alpacas in the fleece section.

The expo is considered a dress rehearsal for when New Zealand hosts the World Alpaca Conference next year.
