Celebrating agriculture’s long history
CELEBRATING the Warren region’s past and present in agriculture is the central theme of the 2018 Make Smoking History Warren District Agricultural Show.
The show has undergone a couple of changes this year, including a changing of the guard for the show committee.
This year’s Warren District Agricultural Society president is Trish Keegan, senior vice president is Kim Starkie junior vice president is Ian Wilson, treasurer is Ethel Sale and show clerk is Rebecca Wallace.
In her president’s message in the show handbook, Mrs Keegan said the celebration of the region’s agricultural heritage was chosen to highlight the changes in the industry.
“All the traditional things from times gone past will be on display in the Exhibition Hall,” she said.
The other big change for this year will be making the Warren District Agricultural Show a one
day event, all held on Saturday, March 17.
This includes the fireworks, which will be held from 9pm, followed by band Chain Reaction.
Exhibition Hall will be open from 9am to 5pm, including a variety of exhibits such as vegetables, cooking, photography, preserves and sewing.
Various competitions include equestrian events, cattle and log chops. Admission is adults $15, children 5-15 $5, children under 5 free and pensioners $10.
