Fireworks set to go off with a mighty bang
THE Mossman Show fireworks spectacular is sure to go off with a bang this year.
The skies above the showgrounds will light up in a kaleidoscope of colours as the grand finale from 8pm on Monday, July 23.
Another family favourite which is sure to prove popular again this year is Melville’s Pioneer Animal Farm.
Animals on display will include baby chicks, ducklings, guinea pigs, turkeys, geese, baby lambs and goats, piglets, calves, miniature horses, donkeys, camels, sheep, boar goats, guinea fowls, bantam chickens and ducks, rabbits and alpacas.
Fans of the fashion and racing ducks Gemima and Donald which parade down the catwalk will have to get a front row seat this year as owner Bryan Harrington is retiring at the end of this year.
Other highlights include the Mossman State High School concert band which will perform prior to the fireworks while there will be plenty of talent on display at the Victor Crees Pavilion including local art, craft, photography, needlework, agriculture and culinary delights.
Agricultural attractions include the fat cattle competitions and a cane exhibition and competition while action in the ring will include show jumping, hacks and sporting events and demonstrations.
