The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE -

Roll up, roll up to the 139th Corowa Show on Sun­day, October 8 and be part of all the great fun to be had.

All the tra­di­tional show ac­tiv­i­ties will be re­turn­ing this year, plus some new at­trac­tions.

The show com­mit­tee has been busy pre­par­ing for the great fam­ily fun day, so be sure to check out the sched­ule so you don’t miss out of any of the at­trac­tions that take your fancy.

Corowa Show Sec­re­tary Jan McKenna said ex­cite­ment was build­ing as the week­end ap­proached.

“We are look­ing for­ward to host­ing an­other fan­tas­tic Corowa Show,” she said.

“It will be an ex­cit­ing day with plenty of show­bags, food, sideshow al­ley rides and the many var­ied stalls on of­fer to our at­ten­dees.

“Once again we have an­other great gate prize up for grabs so come along, sup­port the show and just have a great spring day with your loved ones.”

The en­try price for the tra­di­tional show com­pe­ti­tion cat­e­gories has been dropped back down to 50 cents for those wishing to en­ter.

Jan said the com­mit­tee was ex­cited to add some new per­form­ers this year and also wel­come back the climb­ing wall, which is al­ways a hit with the chil­dren.

One of the new at­trac­tions will be magic and com­edy act Troppo Bob who de­liv­ers a re­fresh­ing mix of ver­bal and vis­ual com­edy, along with friendly good–hu­moured au­di­ence in­ter­ac­tion and has been de­scribed as pro­vid­ing amaz­ing mag­i­cal ex­pe­ri­ences.

Troppo Bob will per­form three shows through­out the day be­tween 10am and 4pm.

The show com­mit­tee also wel­comes on board Trixie the Clown who will be per­form­ing three times on the day and will also be rov­ing with her fab­u­lous bal­loons.

Mean­while, Black Snake Pro­duc­tions will re­turn this year with a range of an­i­mals in­clud­ing croc­o­diles.

There will also be the plenty of rides, show­bags and food.

For the first time the horse events pro­gram will in­clude a chil­dren’s ring.

The in­tro­duc­tion of the un­der 18 chil­dren’s ring will fea­ture $1000 in prize­money that will be spread over Cham­pion, Re­serve Cham­pion and Highly Com­mended over the 55 classes.

Sara Love re­turns as ring­mas­ter and gar­lands will be awarded to Supreme Rider, Supreme Open Rid­den Ex­hibit, Supreme Led Ex­hibit, Supreme Show Hunter, Goldie Fox and L J Ske­hans Memo­ri­als.

All cham­pi­ons in rings one, two and three will re­ceive a bag of chaff spon­sored by Corowa Chaff Mill.

Res­i­dents are en­cour­aged to try their hand at mak­ing jams, jel­lies, pick­les, sauces and cakes, as well as craft, knit­ting, cro­chet, dress­mak­ing and em­broi­dery and en­ter their best in the show.

Why not ran­sack your gar­den for fruit and veg­eta­bles and pick your favourite flow­ers? – and don’t for­get the eggs – all will be judged to find the best of the best at the show.

For the artis­tic types there is paint­ing, draw­ing, col­lages sculp­tures and pho­tog­ra­phy ex­hi­bi­tions.

The horse events are pop­u­lar at the Corowa Show for both rid­ers and spec­ta­tors.

This year’s Corowa Show fea­tures all the tra­di­tional show com­pe­ti­tion cat­e­gories.
