Thousands of people are getting to see the latest home and leisure innovations at Northland's largest event highlighting the wares.

Around 12,000 people are expected to flock to Whangarei's ASB Stadium this weekend for the Northland Autos Home and Leisure Show, with the doors opening to large crowds yesterday.

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

Visitors will get a passport card when they enter and will then need to get stamps from the 28 stalls displayed. All 28 have donated prizes and one person will win them all - worth $5500. The Home Show runs until 4pm today, then 10am-3pm tomorrow .
