Fun day out for kids and pets
Cape Creatures Veterinary Hospital hosted another great Children’s Pet Show on Friday.
The pet show was part of afternoon activities at the Margaret River and Districts Agricultural Show.
Children showed off their furry friends in categories including most colourful pet, bestdressed pet, pet and owner lookalike, and best performing pet.
The event attracted 50 entrants and about 150 spectators.
Veterinary nurse Amanda Jongedyk said it was the biggest turnout the show had had so far.
Prizes were donated by local businesses and Cape Creatures thanked everyone for their involvement.
Margaret River turned on some great weather for the 88th annual Margaret River and Districts Agricultural Show last weekend.
A beautiful sunset on Friday night was a pre-show to the annual fireworks display.
On Saturday, visitors continued to take in the different carnival rides, showbag stalls, food vans, sideshow alley and display hall.
Agricultural Society president Kylie Kennaugh said it was the biggest show so far.
“In my 17 years on the committee I have never seen it so busy,” she said.
“The hall was packed, the trade spaces were full, and we had record number of people come through the gates.”
Ms Kennaugh said the number of attendees this year was in excess of 10,000.
