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.”
