THIS LITTLE GUY: Young Angus Leigh-Mackenzie is almost too cute for words, armed with a miniature chainsaw at the Fieldays.


Tomorrow is the final day of the four-day NZ National Agricultural Fieldays at Mystery Creek, 8am-5pm. Adult tickets are $20 a pop and kids, aged 5-14, are $15.

MetService says the weather will be fine, with a high of 16C but keep a pair of gummies handy, just in case. You don't want to be like me, ankle deep in mud sans gumboots - I should've known better, being a farm girl. As I was berating my own stupidity, I then managed to lose the car in a sea of other silver cars, only to get stuck in mud trying to drive out of the car park. 


A group of local dancers are bringing burlesque to Hamilton at the Meteor Theatre on Saturday night. Doors open at 7.30pm, with the show kicking off at 8pm. Tickets are $20 at the door. It's being hosted by Drag Diva, Miss Glorious Ole. Songstress Christine Frew is performing as well as local artists Miss Ooh, La La Paree, Lady Gee and Miss Bettsy Rose Lee, Miss Burlesque NZ 2011. Oh, and its R18.



It's that time again. Head to Hukanui Park on Gordonton Road for the monthly Gordonton Country Market on Saturday, 8.30am- 1pm.


The Waikato Pistons will go up against the Canterbury Rams an Hamilton Boys' High School on Sunday, 3pm, in a bid to make the National Basketball League playoffs.


Trust Waikato Symphony presents Winter Dreams at the Clarence St Theatre this Sunday, 2-4pm. Tickets are $20 and $10 for children.

If you know of an event or gig happening in the Waikato, email with the details before that week's top five is published.
