Show a hit for lo­cals

Isis Town and Country - - Kolan News -

THE screams and cheers drifted across the Bruce Hwy last week­end as Gin Gin hosted the third show in two weeks through­out the re­gion.

Ex­cited crowds flocked to the show­ground to en­joy this year’s packed show sched­ule.

Lo­cally grown fruit and veg­eta­bles were on dis­play show­cas­ing the best prod­ucts in the re­gion.

It was dif­fi­cult for judges as they in­spected dozens of en­tries and cat­e­gories.

Event or­gan­iser Wendi Guy said this year’s show was a great suc­cess.

“We had record numbers thought the gates and fan­tas­tic numbers of en­trants.

“The show con­tin­ues to grow and it’s the com­mu­nity we need to thank,” she said.

Mak­ing an ap­pear­ance at the show were lo­cal Miss Show­girl win­ner Re­becca Green, Ru­ral am­bas­sador Zac McNully and Tasma Gane, sell­ing raf­fle tick­ets for the show so­ci­ety.

The 107th Gin Gin Show fire­works dis­play had lo­cals thrilled as the night sky lit up; high­way traf­fic came to a stand­still as the fire­works stopped cu­ri­ous driv­ers.

Once again, the tire­less ef­forts of the com­mit­tee pro­duced a fun-filled week­end.
