It’s showtime in Shepparton

October 13, 2017

Marlene Atkinson, 13, and Kelsy the boar goat are not scared of the Shepparton Agricultural Shows' Fun House.

Step right up. Step right up. It is time to take in the wonders of this year’s Shepparton Agricultural Show.

Originally started in 1877, the show aims to bring people two days of fun and excitement as they experience an array of carnival rides, cute and cuddly animals, wood chopping, gems, craft, flowers and cake exhibitions.

Show administrator Julie Winch said there would be a variety of things for people to do and see such as a cute mini foal, a CFA display and cattle judging today.

For adventure seekers there will also be a wide variety of rides such as the beast and a giant ferris wheel.

‘‘There’s something suitable for all the thrill seekers out there,’’ Ms Winch said.

For many the show is a great chance to catch-up with friends and family and enjoy a day out.

Ms Winch said the show gave people a chance to get back to the traditions of country life.

‘‘They can learn about what makes a community work, they can find out about how milk is produced, how chooks lay eggs and they can see what a horse and goat looks like,’’ she said.

‘‘Plus it’s just an opportunity for the community to come together.’’

Unfortunately this year’s show will not include a fireworks display.

The Shepparton Agricultural Show is on today from 10am to 10pm and tomorrow from 10am to 10pm.
