All eyes to night sky

Central and North Burnett Times - - MUNDUBBERA SHOW -

ADD fire­works to all the reg­u­lar fun of the Mun­dub­bera show with its ex­tended Satur­day night pro­gram, and you have a recipe for a spec­tac­u­lar time.

The town’s 82nd an­nual show will be held on Fri­day and Satur­day, May 10-11.

KC’s Fire­works Dis­plays is world-renowned as a first-class en­ter­tain­ment com­pany, pro­vid­ing the best in fire­works in Aus­tralia, and they will im­press Mun­dub­bera show-go­ers on Satur­day evening.

Fri­day will bring cam­p­draft­ing and prime cat­tle judg­ing, with re­sults of cat­tle in feed­lot aswell as grass-fed classes be­ing judged.

Pav­il­ion sec­tions of cook­ery, hor­ti­cul­ture, craft, farm pro­duce and dis­plays will also be judged on Fri­day.

Two new classes have been added to the cook­ing sec­tion of the show this year: Spe­cial Oc­ca­sion Iced Cake Sec­tion (spon­sored by Gary Palmer Royal Ho­tel) – (A) For­mal Oc­ca­sion and (B) Nov­elty.

Both classes are worth $125 to win, $75 for sec­ond place and $50 for third.

Pho­tog­ra­phy, art and needle­work will be judged on Thurs­day.

Lo­cal horse events, in­clud­ing gymkhana events for all ages, and some show jumping events, will be held on Fri­day.

Sideshows and Ul­ti­mate En­ter­tain­ment from Bris­bane will keep the young ones en­ter­tained both days, and the bar­be­cue, re­fresh­ments and bar will op­er­ate.

Ul­ti­mate En­ter­tain­ment will en­gage the chil­dren with singing and danc­ing shows and craft ac­tiv­i­ties.

Cir­cus artist Ty­rone O’Reilly will cap­ture plenty of at­ten­tion as he walks on stilts breath­ing and spin­ning fire and demon­strat­ing other cir­cus skills.

Pa­trons can dou­ble their luck when guess­ing the weight of a beast this year, as live and dead weights can be guessed and trade dis­plays will have some­thing to in­ter­est ev­ery­one.

The show of­fice will be op­er­at­ing from the show­grounds from 10am Mon­day, May 6, not Mun­dub­bera Fur­ni­tureCourt as it has in pre­vi­ous years.
