All the fun of Coffs 101st show
COFFS Harbour Showground is looking a little empty this week after unprecedented crowds celebrated the weekend's 101st Coffs Harbour Agricultural Show.
7300 people came through the gates on Saturday, and 5000 on Sunday - a pleasing result for organisers.
There was plenty on offer at the show, from the new ultimate boys' toys expo for the blokes, large numbers of exhibits, and the popular sideshow alley for the youngsters.
Coffs Harbour Show Society president Margo Caba said along with the entertainment, the weekend's events showcased the region's diverse agricultural strengths.
"We've had more agricultural entries this year than ever before," she said.
"It's wonderful to see the locals who have come out and support it."
The exhibition halls were also filled with creativity and showcased stunning photography and detailed art and craft, and the displays of school student artwork were bursting with colour.
Margo said despite Sunday's rain, it was a successful weekend by any measure.
"Above all the show is a community event that is made possible by the people who volunteered their time and energy," she said.
