A GOOD crowd hav­ing a good time at Gayn­dah’s 101st show will be the best thank you to all the vol­un­teers and helpers, show so­ci­ety pres­i­dent Cam Polzin said.

And Satur­day night’s Miss Show­girl pre­sen­ta­tions were the per­fect start to the show.

“Con­grat­u­la­tions to our Miss Show­girls and all the en­trants, who pre­sented them­selves well and were re­ally lovely,” he said.

They’ll be am­bas­sadors for a show packed with ac­tion, new at­trac­tions and old favourites.

“It’s all good as you need a bit of ev­ery­thing to make a show day,” Cam said.

“We do like to change a bit to freshen it up, as well as hav­ing the favourites, such as the poul­try, wood­chop and dog show.

“We en­cour­age all the fam­i­lies to come.”

While the Young Farm­ers Chal­lenge won’t be held this year, show-go­ers are asked to bring their own whip for the new whip-crack­ing com­pe­ti­tion.

Ben Baw­den’s Cock­a­too Chaos, a mo­bile wildlife dis­play fea­tur­ing Aus­tralian black cock­a­toos, a crocodile, pos­sums and snakes, will fea­ture at this year’s show, with train­ers present all day to an­swer ques­tions.

Also new at the show will be the Bendigo Bank Lego Tent, a space for kids to use their cre­ative skills and imag­i­na­tion; Fanta Sea face paint­ing by Leanne; and two su­per­vised ses­sions of chil­dren’s craft.

Those keen to have an art break are wel­come to join Suzie Capewell’s 3D drawing classes at 10am and 1pm.

En­tries are wel­come for the lo­cal tal­ent show hosted by Ray Sav­age from 1pm, and your most worn-out hat or boots can com­pete for a prize in the bug­gered hats and boots com­pe­ti­tion.

There’s plenty of fun for all the fam­ily with cir­cus stunt and fire shows, Wide Bay laser skir­mish, and a tie-dy­ing work­shop with Jacq.

To bring the event to a rous­ing fin­ish, there will be fire­works and en­ter­tain­ment by gui­tar-based duo Mur­mur and Gympie band Steal­ing Lin­coln.

Come one, come all, come to the show!
