Euroa Agri­cul­tural Show only a month away

Euroa Gazette - - NEWS - By AU­DREY MCIN­TOSH

GREAT plans have been put into ac­tion for the Euroa Show on the week­end of Oc­to­ber 28 and 29, with new at­trac­tions and many of the fa­mil­iar out­side ac­tiv­i­ties that have taken place over the last 125 years.

This year all the horse en­tries will be held on the Sun­day ex­cept for the harness and car­riage horses, which will be held on the Satur­day.

The Scare­crow Com­pe­ti­tion which started last year is on again and we look for­ward to these won­der­ful cre­ations from or­gan­i­sa­tions, schools, busi­nesses and in­di­vid­u­als.

Chil­dren’s ac­tiv­i­ties will again be a fea­ture and who doesn’t like see­ing mem­bers of the an­i­mal fam­ily all to­gether on dis­play.

Where else would you be able to get up close to these but at the Euroa Show – a koala, joey kan­ga­roo, laugh­ing kook­aburra, snakes, echidna, a dingo and many more in this ‘Wild Ac­tion Team’.

TV zo­ol­o­gist Chris Humphrey’s show will be per­formed in three ex­cit­ing stage shows.

An­other at­trac­tion will be the Stilt Walker weav­ing her way amongst the crowd dur­ing the day.

This year the NR Ral­ston Pavil­ion will have new prizes to at­tract en­tries and some special spon­sors keep­ing the ste­wards in sev­eral sec­tions.

As in the past there will be the usual spon­sored prizes in the sched­ule but added ones in the flo­ral sec­tion.

Hope­fully all the spon­sors will see plenty of en­tries in the sec­tions they are spon­sor­ing.

This year again, en­tries in the pavil­ion sec­tions will be online and de­tails will be avail­able in the sched­ule.

Ste­wards will be at the li­brary and at the show­grounds on des­ig­nated days to help en­trants with their en­tries.

These days will be de­tailed in a later ar­ti­cle.

Here’s hop­ing for an­other suc­cess­ful Euroa Show in 2017.

SPRING DE­LIGHT: there will be plenty of lo­cally grown flow­ers on show in the pavil­ion.
