Show has a jam-packed pro­gram

Isis Town and Country - - 2015 Childers Show -

“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.”
