Euroa Show amazing
IT was colourful and bright and the smell of deep fried and barbecued goods was wafting around the vicinity.
The show began with a welcome from mayor Amanda McClaren and Steph Ryan (MLA, Euroa), as they pronounced the show officially open.
There were little miss show girls and boys, prepped in their best outfits for the day, but quick to change into comfy attire once the formalities were over.
It was shortly after that they took to the many rides the Euroa Show had to offer, as they zipped around up and down, with competitive stakes on the dodgems.
After all the tummy jiggling was finished it was straight to the show bag stand that had something for eve- ryone, and it wasn’t just the kids enjoying the sweets.
Of course the Agriculture wasn’t to be missed, with a variety of animals on show for all to see, the speediness of the shearers was a super impressive sight.
As always, there were plenty of local community groups volunteering and cooking up a storm for all of the patrons to enjoy.
The pavilion was filled with crochet wonders, floral gems, fully recyclable animals, sweet treats and wonderful knitting work, which was enjoyed by all that wondered around to see who had scored top prize.
Everything had been put together by the show committee, who did a visibly great job of pulling everything together on the day, a real community effort.
Just like that, another show weekend had passed but for all of those that went, they left with full tummies, big smiles, a show bag and maybe a ribbon for those lucky contenders.
