Mullum Show was one to remember

Large crowds lined Burringbar Street to grab a glimpse of more than 70 shiny trucks as they honked their way towards the Mullumbimby Showground.


It was an impressive and noisy start to a successful weekend packed with fun and festivities at the Mullumbimby Show.


After the official show opening on Saturday, hundreds of people huddled under the shade of marquees and trees to watch the greatly anticipated Showgirl contest.


 MC Ellen Briggs introduced the gorgeous Tiny Tots entrants first to plenty of ‘oohs and aaahs’ from the crowd.


Taking home the Junior Showgirl sash this year was Chandelle Reynolds, with Amanda McKinnon winning the 2010 Showgirl title.


Ms Briggs, who was also involved in judging for the contest, said she had encouraged all young girls to be part of the showgirl contest.


“It’s really very fun. It’s a great way to meet lots of new people and there’s lots of comedy in it too,” she said.


While Saturday’s program ended with a talent quest and a bang of fireworks that delighted the crowd and the entire Mullumbimby township, Sunday was equally as entertaining, especially for animal lovers.


There were many beautiful animals on show, a record number of cattle, horses, cats and dogs to name a few.


The ugliest dog was won by Gus the British bulldog, whose owner Emma said he was also beautiful.


Sunday’s snake show was a highlight for some, while others preferred to chill out in the company of Clelia Adams or watch the spectacular motorcycle display.


With such a diverse program, huge crowds, and after being blessed with fine weather, the 2010 Mullumbimby Show will certainly be one to remember.
