Euroa Show amaz­ing

Euroa Gazette - - FRONT PAGE - BY GRACE EVANS gevans@ne­me­

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.
