Around 12,000 people are expected to flock to Whangarei's ASB Stadium over the next three days for the Northland Autos Home and Leisure Show.

Organised by the Northern Advocate, the Home Show has 156 exhibitors displaying virtually everything needed for the home or leisure activities.

The show, which will be even bigger than last year's event, runs from today until Sunday, with entry $2 today and $5 tomorrow and Sunday, with children under 12 free.

Visitors will get a passport card when they enter and will then need to get stamps from the 28 stalls displayed on the card. All 28 have donated prizes and one person will win them all - worth $5500.


The Home show runs until 4pm today then 10am-4pm tomorrow and 10am-3pm on Sunday.
