After some lean years, the show committee has re-formed under president Tony Naclerio, and with his enthusiastic group of volunteers, the show is ready to bring a load of fun and excitement to town on November 14 and 15.
Starting with a truck parade through the main street at 11am on the Saturday, the show program is packed with displays, music, competitions, petting zoo and kids’ space, truck, ute and motorbike shows and the ever-popular sideshow alley.
Saturday is the main competition day, with lots going on in the cattle and horse rings, as well as a talent quest and concert.
Sunday fun-day features a pet show, markets, buskers and the pavilion charity auction.
Leading things off is the Showgirls Gala Dinner Ball at the Mullumbimby Bowling Club on Wednesday, November 4.
Tickets are $45 per person including a three-course dinner and entertainment with comedian Ellen Briggs, DJ Stevie D, and singer Eleea Navarro – this is filling fast, so get down to Mullumbimby Newsagents and see Jenelle for tickets.
Showgirl entrants can compete in three categories: under 7, 7-14 years and 18-25 years. The competition aims to find a young woman to act as an Ambassador for Rural NSW, a position involving many official and informal duties.
Last entries must be in by 1pm today (Thurs) and the winner will be announced at the official Mullumbimby Show Opening Ceremony.
Everyone is invited to prepare entries for the pavilion competitions.
Categories include art and craft, photography, cooking, flowers and vegetables, poultry, beef cattle, pets and even scarecrows, and a complete list of categories and entry forms is available at www.mullumbimbyshow.org.au.
For the musical amongst us, there is a talent quest on Saturday open to singers and musicians.
There are prizes for under 12s and over 12s involving one or two performers, and an open category for groups of three or more.
Entries must be in by November 11, and for more information call Margaret on 66841128.
