Eidsvold show had it all
EIDSVOLD celebrated its 70th annual agricultural show last weekend.
Resident Noel Thompson said the event brought together the past and the present.
“We can see events as old as the history of the show itself, like photography, vegetables, cooking, beef cattle and of course the wood chop,” Mr Thompson said. “Then we have the newer events like scrapbooking and the chainsaw races.
“All these events take skills that rural-living people practise in their everyday life. Putting their skills on display once a year as part of the annual show brings a community together.”
Mr Thompson said the work of the show society was outstanding.
“(They) need to be congratulated for their efforts in putting this show together and their year-after-year commitment to great fairy floss, fireworks, and fun,” he said.
“The show circuit is on its way through the inland Burnett and I would encourage everyone to get out and support a great country tradition.”
