Putting on a show
IT'S showtime in Woodenbong.
After being cancelled because of bad weather last year, Woodenbong's annual show is back bigger and better than ever on Sunday, April 29.
Revellers will be able to get into the show mood with a pre-show barbecue and live entertainment at the showground on Saturday, April 28, from 6pm.
Admission is free and everyone is welcome to come along.
On show day, the ring events will start at 8am, with two rings operating.
The cattle judging starts at 10am and there will be entertainment for the young and young at heart throughout the morning with a pet show, novelty events and an animal nursery.
There will also be entertainment by two local dance groups and a competition to recognise the Year of the Farmer, with children up to 12 years old invited to dress up as anything to do with farmers or farming.
The winners will be announced during the official opening of the show at 1pm when the local Border Ranges Pony Club performs a march past.
The pavilion will be open after judging is completed about 10.30am with all local produce, cooking, handicrafts, art and photography on display.
There will also be exciting chainsaw demonstrations, a ute show, the ironman competition, championship dog show, and a full program of pony club, equestrian and showjumping events.
Those wanting to make a weekend of it, can head to Woodenbong on the Saturday for the Yowie Country Market at the Woodenbong Hall and grounds from 8am-3pm.
It will be the market's fourth birthday celebration and there will be live entertainment as well as the usual market stalls and artistic demonstrations.
