MONTO CELEBRATES SHOW TIME
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.
THAT'S A WRAP: Miss Showgirls Rachel Black and Ashleigh-Rose Rollings wave to the crowd during the 2017 Monto Show Parade.
