South Western Times - - Front Page - Jac­inta Can­ta­tore

The Brunswick Show prom­ises to dis­play a dif­fer­ent side of the fa­mous dairy town as stall­hold­ers, com­peti­tors and en­ter­tain­ers join for this year’s “Show­cas­ing Brunswick” theme. Sis­ters Layla, 8, Laura, 6, and El­iz­a­beth Mitchell, 4, all of Benger and friend Bella Kiely, 5, of Roe­lands, met Mr Billy the Cly­des­dale ahead of Satur­day’s big event.

Show­cas­ing Brunswick will be the theme of the 87th an­nual LiveLighter Brunswick Agri­cul­tural Show this Satur­day.

Show pro­mo­tions of­fi­cer Lind­say Rose said it was a chance for vis­i­tors to see a dif­fer­ent side of the town.

“Brunswick is tra­di­tion­ally fa­mous for the ice-cream fac­tory, the cheese fac­tory, milk pro­cess­ing – pretty much and all things dairy,” she said.

“But as a town we do so much more than that, like com­mu­nity-driven events and the Brunswick River restora­tion to name a cou­ple.

“This year’s theme is a chance to give show pa­trons an idea of what else our com­mu­nity can do.”

Brunswick Agri­cul­tural So­ci­ety pres­i­dent Rob Ge­orge said the town had a lot to look for­ward to and it was a chance to show all as­pects of the town’s great com­mu­nity spirit.

“Our fore­fa­thers would be honoured by the achieve­ments of the so­ci­ety in the past 87 years,” he said.

“The Brunswick Show is a won­der­ful day out for the whole fam­ily, with cham­pion live­stock, the best of ma­chin­ery, free en­ter­tain­ment, trin­ket stalls and a grand fi­nale of fire­works at 8pm.”

Gates open at 8.30am at the Brunswick Show­grounds.
