FROM the lolly drop to the egg and spoon races, there was plenty of fun for the younger crowd for the Eidsvold Show at the week­end.

Eidsvold Show pres­i­dent Mar­shall Langston said he was im­pressed with the en­tire event.

“I think it was a mas­sive suc­cess, we had lots of kids and fam­i­lies make it to­day which was re­ally good to see,” Mr Langston said.

“They par­tic­i­pated in the ac­tiv­i­ties and re­ally had a ball, these shows are great for the towns.

“It was the first year we ran the egg and spoon race and we had a large turn out of chil­dren who par­tic­i­pated in it, it was fan­tas­tic to see.”

Lol­lies dropped from a small aero­plane at the show, with chil­dren rush­ing to catch them.

From the Team Pen­ning that took place in the early hours of the morn­ing to show jump­ing, there was lots of fun for ev­ery­one.

The Young Judges and Parad­ing took place at the stud arena at the same time, and in­volved plenty of par­tic­i­pants.

Af­ter­wards the wood­chop­ping com­menced, fol­lowed closely by the Horse Shoe­ing com­pe­ti­tion.

Mr Langston said the event went off with­out a hitch and over­all it was “a great night.”

“It was a re­ally good day, we had no ma­jor dra­mas and the fire­works were just fan­tas­tic,” Mr Langston said.

“The fire­works went on and on and on which was just bril­liant.”

“I’d like to thank the state govern­ment who gave us a grant of $6500 to run the show, we wouldn’t be able to do it with­out the gen­er­ous help.”
