Bangalow Show goes off with, well, a bang



IT'S UNANIMOUS - the Bangalow Show was a ripper.

The estimated crowd of 8000 was not deterred by the rain and entries for exhibits were up.

Show president Micheal O'Meara was thrilled with the two-day event.

Member for Ballina, Don Page, declared it the best show on the North Coast.

"It's a real community event," Mr Page said.

It had it all - the rides, the stalls, the exhibits, the animals and a pinch of Bangalow flavour to make it unique.

From the start it was set to be a success with Bangalow's own Olympian David Rhodes doing the honours and opening the two-day show.

The Miss Show Girl sash went to Sarah Firth and Jasmine Hunt won Miss Teen Girl.

Sean Hogan won 6-12 years boys and Sally Bird won 6-12 girls.

The show finished in a flurry of spectacular fireworks, with officials well pleased with the results of their hard work.
