Record entries at Coffs show

ALL roads lead to Coffs Harbour Showground today for the Coffs Harbour Show, being held 96 years after the first show in 1914.

Coffs Harbour Show Society president Chris Pearson said yesterday the 2010 Show had attracted record numbers of trade displays.

Horse events organiser, Margo Caba, said all horse stables at the Showground were full and poultry steward John Arnett said they also had a full poultry pavilion, with around 300 entries.

The showgirl competition has also been popular, with seven girls vying for the Coffs Harbour Showgirl title and 10 for the Junior Showgirl title.

The winners will be sashed following this afternoon’s Grand Parade and official opening.

The show will be opened at 2pm today by former long-serving show Secretary Lorraine Tibbs, as part of a tribute by the present show committee to the many years of work put in by long-time volunteers

Mr Pearson said the first day of the show had gone smoothly, with good numbers in the dressage events, held for the first time for many years.
