Coffs Harbour’s favourite yellow fellow is back on top at the Show.

PERFECT weather has brought the public out in force with crowds streaming through the gates for the Coffs Harbour Show.

This year the show committee beefed up the competition and exhibition activities and chief steward Maria Bell reports entries are up on 2011 figures.

"Several new categories have created a lot of interest and what is on offer in the pavilion looks fantastic," she said.

"The presentation of Faberge eggs is outstanding.

"Special praise for the seven entries from professional florists, especially with Mothers Day this weekend.

"Florists are as busy as fleas on a dog at this time of year and to have so many excellent examples of floral art is quite and achievement."

That old stalwart of Coffs Coast agriculture, the banana, has made a major comeback in this year's Show.

"The banana growers got right behind us this year and it's a fiercely fought competition among exhibitors," Ms Bell added.

The 2012 Coffs Harbour Show will wrap up with the rodeo starting at 3pm Sunday.
