En­ter­tain­ment to de­light, ex­cite, whet ap­petite

Chinchilla News - - CHINCHILLA SHOW -

WITH whipcrack­ing, rodeo clown an­tics, a crazy trick-rid­ing cow­girl and coun­try mu­sic singer, there is a def­i­nite theme to much of the en­ter­tain­ment planned for this year’s Chin­chilla Show.

Rodeo-clown-gym­nasts and all-round lar­rikins, the Crack Up Sis­ters, will be back by pop­u­lar de­mand with their home­stead, cat­tle dog, big cos­tumes and big­ger per­son­al­i­ties in tow to cart­wheel and whipcrack all day Fri­day and into the evening.

New­comer Wal­ter Whipcracker one-ups the whipcrack­ing show by set­ting his whips on fire. Yes, you read that cor­rectly.

Wal­ter Le­souef, known as Wal­ter Whip and The Flames, will be per­form­ing some unique and fan­tas­ti­cally danger­ous stunts, some even with au­di­ence par­tic­i­pa­tion.

2016 Golden Gui­tar fi­nal­ist Seleen McAlis­ter is bring­ing the tunes that no coun­try show would be com­plete with­out on the Satur­day of the Chin­chilla Show.

Mikayla Jade, “Aus­tralia’s Own Crazy Cow­girl”, takes the coun­try theme and turns it on its head with the kind of trick-rid­ing that would make Evel Knievel shud­der.

At 15 Ms Jade be­came the youngest trick rider to ever join the iconic Aus­tralian Out­back Spec­tac­u­lar, where she per­formed for 18 months be­fore tak­ing the show on the in­ter­na­tional road and toured with Cirque De Solei style show Cavalia.

Ms Jade cur­rently lives in Los An­ge­les, where she per­forms with the Wild West Ex­press, but is drop­ping home for a hand­ful of spe­cial shows, with Chin­chilla Show pen­cilled in on her list.

Plus plenty of other en­ter­tain­ment will be on the pro­gram platter to de­light, ex­cite and whet your ap­petite, in­clud­ing the Young Farm­ers’ Chal­lenge, Rampt Mini Fmx, fire­works and rodeo. The NDIS is a new way of sup­port­ing peo­ple with a dis­abil­ity across Aus­tralia. Par­tic­i­pants will re­ceive a pack­age based on their in­di­vid­ual goals. The NDIS pro­vides an im­por­tant op­por­tu­nity to “think big” about what a good life looks like for you. While this op­por­tu­nity sounds promis­ing, nav­i­gat­ing any new sys­tem can be con­fus­ing! CRU & QDN are run­ning work­shops to help peo­ple and com­mu­ni­ties get ready for the NDIS.
