Show proves a hit with kids

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

THE Proser­pine Show had it all last week, keep­ing kids busy with a vast ar­ray of rides and ac­tiv­i­ties.

The show, which took place at the Proser­pine Show­grounds on Fri­day and Satur­day, at­tracted chil­dren of all ages, but a par­tic­u­lar favourite over the weekend was the pet­ting zoo.

Meet­ing goats, chick­ens and ducks among other farm friends proved a hit, es­pe­cially with fam­i­lies, while those who love ac­tion were well served by quad bikes.

The reg­u­lar at­trac­tions like the fer­ris wheel, bumper cars and the time­less teacup rides also re­ceived work­outs.

The en­ter­tain­ment wasn’t just for the chil­dren ei­ther, with pop­u­lar stunt­man MC Scoot in­ter­act­ing with the crowd dur­ing his eye-pop­ping chainsaw and fire jug­gling acts.

And of course it isn’t a show with­out show bags, en­abling the kids to take home a piece of the 2014 car­ni­val with a wide-range of themes to choose from.

PET­TING ZOO: Bronte Taotofi, 14 months, and Diane Jones meet a friendly rooster at the Proser­pine Show on Fri­day.

BUCKLE UP: Ge­orge Canfield with young Kiera Cho­han, 4, pre­par­ing for a ride on the bumper cars dur­ing the Proser­pine Show on Fri­day.
