Fri­day night spec­tac­u­lar saves show

Benalla Ensign - - News -

The Be­nalla Show was saved by the Fri­day night spec­tac­u­lar which in­cluded first class show jumpers and the Mag­i­cal Mini-Fun cars.

Ev­ery cloud has a sil­ver lin­ing with the 1992 show a big suc­cess de­spite the atro­cious weather.

Show So­ci­ety sec­re­tary Bar­bara Stephens said it could worse.

De­spite flood warn­ings and con­tin­ued rain, crowds packed into the Be­nalla Show­grounds on Fri­day night.

‘‘Num­bers were not down much over­all,’’ Mrs Stephens said.

It was the first time the Fri­day night un­der lights have been much had been held and it was a credit to show or­gan­is­ers.

De­spite a 45-minute black­out, the ‘showies’ switched on their gen­er­a­tors and side show al­ley was packed out.

Last year’s show at­tracted record num­bers and Mrs Stephens said num­bers this year were prob­a­bly higher than some of the bet­ter shows in the past.

The high­light of the night was the Nyree Mini-Fun Cars, which had the crowd packed 20 deep around the show­grounds.

‘‘They were ab­so­lutely fan­tas­tic,’’ Mrs Stephens said.
