Cold conditions have failed to suppress the enthusiasm of thousands of Tasmanians who have flocked to this year’s Royal Hobart Show.

A snow covered Mt Wellington has created a chilly back drop to People’s Day at the Royal Hobart Show.

The weather has not deterred thousands of people who have passed through the gates of the showgrounds this morning.

They are watching wood chopping and guinea pig racing, as well as more traditional offerings, alongside side show alley.

Judging for several best in-show competitions is underway.

The Royal Hobart Show Society’s CEO Scott Gadd is hopeful most events will go ahead as planned.

“If it’s showers it shouldn’t impact too much because that won’t impact anything we do,” he said.

“It’s only if it gets really wet, really heavy rain and wind that we need to start rethinking the program.”
