Plenty to see at show and shine

Shepparton News - Country News - - COBRAM HORSE TRIALS -

The Euroa Show and Shine is back again this week­end.

To­gether with the event’s ma­jor spon­sor, Shan­nons In­sur­ance, or­gan­is­ers have fo­cused on pre­sent­ing some of the best cars, bikes and other ‘‘things with en­gines’’ to ex­cited hordes of mo­tor­ing en­thu­si­asts.

There will be ex­hi­bi­tions from mo­tor­ing clubs, steam en­gines, a speed­way dis­play and the Coun­try Fire Au­thor­ity, Vic­to­ria Po­lice and Am­bu­lance Vic­to­ria will of­fer great in­sights into what’s new for our emer­gency ser­vices.

The high­light of the day will be the pre­sen­ta­tions of the tro­phies to the win­ners at 2 pm.

Stands will fill the streets and parks of­fer­ing special deals, so the whole event be­comes a mar­ket­place with an ex­cit­ing fam­ily en­vi­ron­ment.

Bands cov­er­ing a va­ri­ety of gen­res will per­form through­out the day and there will be a rock ’n’ roll danc­ing ex­hi­bi­tion.

For the fam­ily, there are sky­divers to watch, he­li­copter rides, free mini-train rides for the kids, face paint­ing, jump­ing cas­tles and a pet­ting zoo with lots of hands-on, cud­dly, furry an­i­mals.

There will also be plenty of food stalls and cof­fee ven­dors through­out the area. ■ Gates open on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 1 at 8 am and the event con­tin­ues un­til about 3.30 pm. En­try is $5, with $10 for dis­play ve­hi­cles, which in­cludes en­try for the driver.
