Entertainment to delight, excite, whet appetite
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.
WHIP IT GOOD: Fire whipcracker Walter Lesouef, known as Walter Whip, will be performing at Chinchilla Show.
