THESE past few weeks have left an im­pres­sion on me as I got to ex­pe­ri­ence what it’s like to at­tend the coun­try shows. And aren’t they just ter­rific?

From the dodgem cars, to watch­ing the cam­p­draft­ing and rodeo acts, to even par­tic­i­pat­ing in the sausage wurst tast­ing, there were ac­tiv­i­ties for ev­ery­one.

It’s amaz­ing to ac­knowl­edge the amount of work that went into set­ting up these events so that ev­ery­thing runs smoothly; all in all you could say it’s been a big talk­ing point for the past year.

This year there was dis­cus­sion that some of the shows had seen in­creased attendance, which is great news for the en­tire com­mu­nity.

My favourite part of the day was get­ting to take part in some of ac­tiv­i­ties and of course watch­ing the fire­works dis­play kick off at 8pm at the show­grounds.

There is al­ways lots to do and plenty to see, but noth­ing could beat the fairy floss and show bags that were on of­fer for all the kids.

For some of the peo­ple who live in the coun­try towns, these shows are the only time they get to catch up with one an­other. This week it’s Biggen­den’s turn to host the show which marks the end­ing of all shows in the North Bur­nett for this year.

I’ll now be rest­ing my legs af­ter a jam packed few weeks; hope you all en­joy this week’s cov­er­age of the Mun­dub­bera Show and all it had to of­fer.

It was fun cov­er­ing it.
