Lismore to see bigger and better motorshow

By WILL JACKSON will.jackson@northernstar.com.au

TRUCKS, motor bikes, tractors, utes, old cars, new cars, fast cars, cara- vans . . . if it's got a motor and wheels you're going to see it and a whole lot more at Lismore's Big Show. The annual motorshow is on again next month at the Lismore Showground and promoter Neil Marks said this year's was going to be even bigger than last year's massive event. "The first one was a huge success, with more than 4000 people coming through the gates, even though it was put together in a really short time- frame," Neil said. "This year we want to expand on the range of things and get more clubs involved. "We're also going to have a beaut ute competi- tion, which should attract people from all over the place." However, it won't just be stuff for the family's revheads. Neil said there would be food, musical entertain- ment, rides for the kid- dies, rock 'n' roll dancing and more.

One of the big attrac- tions will be a tethered hot air balloon run by By- ron Bay Balloons. Neil said it was essen- tially a big fundraiser for the struggling North Coast National Show Society. The idea was to make use of the showground, which lies dormant for most of the year, he said. He said they were still looking for exhibitors for the April 28 event. "Anyone who wants to get involved should get in touch," he said. To book a site call Neil Marks on 0419 284 827 or Deb Tilley 0407 102 770.
