MONTO CEL­E­BRATES SHOW TIME

Central and North Burnett Times - - FRONT PAGE -

HUN­DREDS came out to en­joy the 87th Monto Show at the week­end and the en­ter­tain­ment did not dis­ap­point.

Sideshow al­ley was bustling with ac­tiv­ity, get­ting busier and busier un­til the kick-off cer­e­mony at 5.30pm Satur­day.

Mean­while, events such as the cake and art com­pe­ti­tion, wood cut­ting, horse sports and more kept peo­ple in­ter­ested.

The event that was on ev­ery­body’s lips from the first night’s fes­tiv­i­ties was the Rooftop Ex­press show, which brought the house down in its first ap­pear­ance at Monto Show­grounds.

Rooftop Ex­press cre­ator David Man­chon said peo­ple from ru­ral towns like Monto were the ones they tried hard­est to im­press be­cause they saw them as peers.

Show vol­un­teer Bri­anna Hockey said Rooftop Ex­press pulled in a big au­di­ence.

“With the rodeo the crowd’s a lit­tle bit sep­a­rated, but sideshow al­ley halted to watch that show,” Miss Hockey said.

The show was busy on Sunday with the pa­rade and open cam­p­draft.
