Mayor Angus McKay says he is really thrilled the All Blacks are coming to our town next week.
"It's a wonderful opportunity for our community to show our loyalty to one of our national icons," says Mayor McKay.
"I encourage everyone to come out and give them a great Ashburton welcome," he says.
The three All Blacks who will be visiting Ashburton will be announced early next week.
On their visit to Ashburton the All Blacks will also be calling into Ashburton College for a skills and drills session, before visiting students at Ashburton Intermediate and having a cuppa tea with the school's staff.
