Auckland's Royal Easter Show has announced its entertainment line-up and it's sweeter than a Cadbury Creme Egg.

The headline acts for this year's event are local legends Tiki Taane, Op-Shop's Jason Kerrison and Laughton Kora.

The celebrated Zirka Circus returns to perform a brand new show, the adrenaline pumping BMX antics of the FMX crew, and - for the kids - The Looney Tunes' Bugs Bunny, Tweety and Sylvester will all be onstage regularly throughout the day.

There's also the usual abundance of fairground style rides and attractions, markets and stalls as well as the animal petting zoo and strong man competition. If that wasn't enough there's also a fireworks display each evening after dark.


The annual free event, has been running for more than 175 years and is a must-do for those that stay in the city over the Easter holidays.

It's takes place at the ASB Showgrounds Thursday 18, April, through to Monday 22, April from 10am-10pm each day.
