BIGGENDEN’S 114th annual show ticked all the boxes with perfect weather along with gate, bar and canteen takings up.
Society president Darren Geissler said Saturday was a huge day.
“Itwas great to see the town and wider community getting behind us,” he said.
“It is worth all the hard work just to see this.”
This year the society introduced wrist bands but ran out by lunchtime on the first day.
“Our pavilion lived up to all expectations with 1300 entries although the weather conditions did affect the fruit and vegetable classes,” he said.
Mr Geissler said it was great to see more kids getting involved in the show with their stud cattle, campdraft, poultry and all the pavilion classes.
“If we can foster this, we have a bright future.”
A feature of the show was the Mark Elliott Memorial stockman’s challenge, a tribute to the 21-year-old killed at a Gin Gin campdraft last September.
