Come and sup­port the show

Isis Town and Country - - CHILDERS SHOW 2014 -

IF YOU love the smell of dag­wood dogs and the thrill of car­ni­val rides, then make sure you check out the Childers Show this weekend.

Ac­cord­ing to Childers Show So­ci­ety pres­i­dent Peter War­ren, the Childers Show is in its 98th year and prom­ises to be a great event for the whole fam­ily to en­joy.

“There will be all the usual great at­trac­tions from Sideshow Al­ley to rides, food and a huge fire­works dis­play,” he said.

The fun kicks off this Satur­day from 3pm, then gates open again on Sun­day at the Show­grounds from 8am.

“The pavil­ion judg­ing will be a big at­trac­tion this year as we have a large dis­play of fruit, ve­g­ies and flow­ers on show,” Mr War­ren said.

“We also have a sweet potato com­pe­ti­tion, which schools from around the re­gion have par­tic­i­pated in.”

There will be a few new events at the show this year, in­clud­ing a wood­chop­ping com­pe­ti­tion and a Young Farm­ers’ Chal­lenge.

“This chal­lenge is for groups of four people and will be set up on a course to test skill and abil­ity through on-farm chal­lenges such as bale toss­ing and more,” Mr War­ren said.

“If you are in­ter­ested in cre­at­ing a group and par­tic­i­pat­ing in this fun event, come and see us on Satur­day in front of the grand­stands to sign up at 3pm for the heats, with fi­nals to com­mence on Sun­day.”

Mr War­ren be­lieves the Childers Show would not be pos­si­ble with­out the con­tin­ued sup­port from the lo­cal com­mu­nity and spon­sor­ship, and urged ev­ery­one to at­tend the event this weekend.

“I would like to thank the many vol­un­teers, in par­tic­u­lar the com­mu­nity groups who have given their time to as­sist in pro­vid­ing the ser­vices needed for the 2014 show,” he said.

“We want to con­tinue to pro­vide a great show for fu­ture years to come, so bring your fam­ily and friends and en­joy all that is on of­fer.”
