Frills, thrills and action for all at Woodenbong Show

WOODENBONG show is this weekend, with a promising line-up of activities for all the family - rain hail or shine.

The 22nd Annual Woodenbong Show will kick off at 6pm tomorrow with a barbecue, bar and entertainment, but the main event will begin bright and early Sunday morning.

Sunday's schedule is packed with performances and competitions to appeal to all tastes and ages.

"We have a huge horse program," said secretary Pam Walker.

"There are lots of equestrian events, as well as kids' novelty events and an animal nursery."

There won't be any dog show this year, but a few new features - a Ute Show and a visiting whip-cracker from Nymboida - will fill the gap.

Other events include exhibitions and competitions in photography, cooking, produce and a variety of differ- ent art forms.

There will also be a chain-saw race, the Woodenbong Hotel Iron Man competition, as well as the Fashions in the Field dress-up competition for men and women of all ages.

"Lots of people from across the state come to get together, dress up and compete," said Ms Walker.

"There's produce and craft; something for everyone and pretty much the whole community goes."
