Highlights of covering rural show season
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.
