Show will be a beauty

MYLES Roser remembers how much fun a day out at the show was when he was a kid.

"It used to be a day outing to go to the show, you were brought up with it," he recalled as he strolled around the Pavilion at the Coffs Harbour Show yesterday.

"It is amazing how many people do still come and look at the show -- it is still a great family day out."

The Coffs Harbour Show and Pavilion commitee member always looks forward to the annual showcase of what our region has to offer - as well as the fun of the sideshows and ring events - and said this year the Pavilion boasts a huge variety.

"It is extra good this year," he said.

"The school displays look great, the bananas look good, all the handiwork is of a high standard, the plants are really good and there are lots this year."

Entry numbers are also good, with about 15 schools exhibiting and hundreds of items on display.

"There is a nice display by the Country Women's Association and lots of cakes, knitwear, quilts . . . there is a big variety of things on show."

The show is open Saturday and Sunday.
