IN THE face of great ad­ver­sity the 2017 Show Whit­sun­day has risen to meet the chal­lenges thrown up by the touch down of Cy­clone Debbie.

The Show So­ci­ety has not just met those chal­lenges but sur­passed all ex­pec­ta­tion with the en­ter­tain­ment line up for this year’s event.

Master horse­man Guy McLean has just been an­nounced as the lead act at the show which will have pun­ters on the edge of their seats.

Since 1999, Guy and his equine team have per­formed all over Aus­tralia at ev­ery ma­jor equine event and agri­cul­tural show.

Guy’s per­for­mances of horse­man­ship, bush po­etry and whip crack­ing have helped to keep the tra­di­tions of the bush and the true Aussie Stock­man alive.

Guy and his horses have achieved na­tional ac­claim in Aus­tralia over the past 15 years and his tal­ented an­i­mals have had their names chanted in front of 20,000 peo­ple at Royal shows in­clud­ing the Bris­bane Ekka.

The sec­ond show stop­per to grace Show Whit­sun­day this year will be stunt rider Mikayla Jade.

Mikayla wows the crowd each and ev­ery time and no two shows are ever the same as she tai­lors her per­for­mances to the in­di­vid­ual crowd wher­ever she per­forms.

Her show ranges from her trick rid­ing act to her equine bal­let act and she is sure to wow the crowd at the Proser­pine Show­grounds.

For a change of pace Wal­ter Whip and the Flames will fea­ture a fire and whip crack­ing ex­trav­a­ganza.

Stunts like the burn­ing ring of fire and whip­ping roses from a girl’s mouth are cer­tain to cap­ti­vate any au­di­ence.

Also the Whit­sun­days’ very own Adore Dance will be per­form­ing a selec­tion of jazz and con­tem­po­rary rou­tines.

This out­stand­ing line up will be com­ple­mented by the usual crowd favourites such as the wood chop and the fire works on Fri­day night.


FUN TIMES: Show Whit­sun­day has bounced back from the brink of can­cel­la­tion in 2017 af­ter Trop­i­cal Cy­clone Debbie caused dev­as­ta­tion to the Proser­pine Show­ground.
