Show has a jam-packed program
“YOU will definitely get plenty of bang for your buck,” said Childers Show Society president Peter Warren.
With all the charm of a local country show rolled in a day filled with plenty of fun and excitement for the whole family, Peter said he could see why the show had been running for a whopping 99 years.
“This is a true community event that allows us to showcase to visitors from throughout Queensland just how great Childers is and how we know how to put on a first-class show,” he said.
“The great part about this year’s show is that the elements that continue to be popular with the crowds such as sideshow alley, food and a huge fireworks display are there but there is also so much more. It will be a case of where do you start from the moment you enter the showgrounds.”
Peter highlighted how schools from around the region had continued to get behind the event, with a whopping 800 sweet potatoes on display in the pavilion.
Other events that will continue this year based on their success last year is the woodchopping with some pretty tough competition travelling to the area to show off their stuff, the Farmer’s Challenge, and the Isis Mill will also have a special sugar cane display that even has a competition attached.
“The pavilion judging will once again be a big attraction this year as we have a large display of fruit, vegies and flowers on show, as well as some pretty impressive cooking and photography,” Peter said.
“We are lucky to have previous showjumper John Robinson a part of the show committee and he continues to organise a very impressive range of horse events, with this year having record numbers of horses coming from around the region.
“Due to popular demand we also have the prime cattle section that includes the led steers and heifers, which is a great opportunity for the school children to perform and showcase their hard work.”
With the show just days away, Peter continued to praise the hard work and dedication of each and every volunteer involved in helping making the event such a success.
“Shows like this wouldn’t be popular without our local support, either through business donations or people giving up their valuable time to help in so many ways,” he said.
“With next year our amazing 100-year celebrations, it is imperative that we continue to provide a great show for future years to come, so bring your family and friends and enjoy all that is on offer.”
