SHOW BRINGS CROWD TO THE REGION
Event runs smoother than ever
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.”
