Giving a little something back to the show
THE 2017 Mount Perry Showgirl Nicola McGregor has spent the past eight years embracing life in Mount Perry and has competed at the show multiple times since arriving in town.
“I’ve competed on my horses in the show for a few years now and I have done that with Mount Perry quite a lot,” Miss McGregor said.
“And I love going to that show.
“It creates such a great environment for horses to compete in and people to enjoy.”
Competing for years at the show, Miss McGregor felt it would be fitting to try her hand at being the showgirl.
“Being the showgirl will limit my competing on the horses but I feel the show has given me great opportunities to compete and now I have a chance to give a little something back by representing them this year,” she said.
It was while riding one of her horses that Miss McGregor found herself entering the showgirl competition.
“I was out riding and this lady approached me about entering,” she said.
“And it feels really good to be the showgirl.
“Having given me so much, I am happy to give something back.”
Miss McGregor said Mount Perry and its show had so much to offer visitors and residents.
“I’d say definitely come, everyone knows everyone here and it’s such a nice little community,” she said.
“Mount Perry has so much heritage.
“Not many people know things like Mount Perry being here before Bundaberg; there is just so much about it no one knows and it’s interesting to find out.
“It’s going to be pretty exciting to be able to get involved in the show girl side of things.”
