Mullumbimby Show - 106 years' old and just getting stronger
AFTER 106 years, Andrea Herraman from the Mullumbimby Show Society says things are going from strength to strength.
"It must be the community feeling out here," she said.
"I think what really saved our show was the beginning of the truck show and combining the two seems to have given it a whole new wind with new people involved.
"It makes it a bit different to other shows and every year we add a few new things."
Some of the new events this year included sheep shearing demonstrations, beekeeping demonstrations and a demolition derby.
Ms Herraman said one of the highlights this year was the re-opening of the poultry shed.
It's had "a coat of paint and a bit of a spruce up".
It has officially been named the Col Mcdonald and Winifred Klepp Poultry Shed after the two volunteers who have been running the poultry competition for about 50 years.
The trotting trials were another popular event, attracting about 50
entries in the seniors section and 30 juniors.
On the stage, bush poet Ray Essery (aka The Mullumbimby Bloke) entertained audiences with his tales of life in the hills of Mullumbimby and young songwriters and young cowboys got the chance to show the crowd what they could do.
The boy who won $50 for whistling Waltzing Matilda looked more stunned than the jolly swagman when he saw the troopers turn up.
