Mullumbimby show a great success

THERE was plenty of side-show fun, horticulture, ring events and premium Northern Rivers beef on display at the Mullumbimby Show over the weekend.

The show society president Tony Naclerio was enthusiastic about both crowd turnout and the high standard ofentries and exhibits at this year’s show.

Mr Naclerio and cattle stew-ard Phil Morrow said there were record cattle entries with the supreme exhibit of the 2010 show awarded to a local heifer Mullum Panash, owned by Mullum Charolais.

Mr Morrow said the show attracted cattle from some of the region’s major studs with very strong interest in junior paraders with 15 entries.

Horses in the showjumping attracted large crowds and an amble down sideshow alley saw kids (and often their dads) zapping down the giant fun slide, getting bounced about on the dodgems instead of on the public roads, or freaking each other out in the haunted house.

The Saturday night talent quest headlined by musician Graham Rodgers and Groovix Cube delighted the crowd with performances that were confident and well prepared.

Nine-year-old Amanuael Visser won the junior section with his rendition of Think of Me from Phantom of the Opera.

Senior winner was Eleea Navara, 16, with a heartfelt and powerful rendition of At Last by Etta James.
