Comment News (Armadale) - - Street Watch -

A HUN­DRED and twenty years af­ter its first out­ing, the Kelm­scott Show is go­ing strong.

The Kelm­scott Agri­cul­tural So­ci­ety (KAS) is ex­pect­ing over 15,000 peo­ple to flock to Rush­ton Park on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 20, and Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 21.

KAS pres­i­dent Vaughan James said the long-run­ning show drew at­ten­dees and ex­hibitors from far and wide.

“Peo­ple come from the City of Ar­madale, but we also have peo­ple com­ing from Rock­ing- ham and Man­durah.” he said.

“We’ve got ex­hibitors com­ing from Wa­gin and some of our com­mit­tee live up in El­len­brook. We ex­pect peo­ple from every­where.”

Fri­day night prom­ises an en­ter­tain­ment spec­tac­u­lar, with the Make Smok­ing His­tory Fire­works, BMX stunt­bikes, sideshows, log chops and more.

Satur­day will see ex­hibitors show off their cat­tle, horses, sheep, don­keys and more, with a spe­cial sec­tion for chil­dren and their pets, while the hall will have flower, pho­tog­ra­phy and cook­ing dis­plays.

Chil­dren can play at the free Sec­ond Chance Op Shop kids zone, take part in demon­stra­tions by lo­cal sport­ing groups and cheer on lo­cals at Kelm­scott Idol.
