2017 Corowa Show fun at the Corowa Show
The poultry section’s entries died off for a few years, but last year the number of entries improved and a huge turkey was an exhibit which created renewed interest.
This year, even this early, the entries are building up so go and get your entries in for the price of just 50 cents per entry.
The secretary’s office is open now to take show entries from 11.30am until 4.30pm each day until Friday, October 6 when entries close at 4.30pm.
Those interested in showing off their showday best can try their luck in the Miss Show Girl competitions.
