Show much fun for everyone

MORE than 8000 people are expected to head to the Coffs Harbour Showgrounds this weekend for the 102nd annual Coffs Harbour Show.

The ever-popular show features all of the crowd favourites such as the sashing of the showgirl; Sideshow Alley with rides, showbags and more; carnival rides, fireworks, wood chopping, demolition derby, mower races, vintage cars and machinery displays, nXt Factor Talent Stage and the carriage driving display.

There is plenty of animal fun on offer, including the oh-so cute and clever guide dogs obstacle course, horses led and ridden, show jumping, sporting events, horse in harness, beef cattle showing and judging school, chook washing, cats and even alpacas.

The Family Farmyard promises to be a hit with the kids with the Baby Animal Nursery petting and feeding, Tabatinga Stage and Jumping Castle, Healthy Harold and the Life Education Van, Thomas the Train, Rufus the Puppeteer, face painting, and the kids can have their photos taken with Peppa Pig, Elmo and friends.

The Coffs Coast Advocate Produce & Craft Pavilion will feature a host of local produce including bananas, fresh produce, honey, flowers, woodwork, art, photography, home brew; cooking, cake decorating, jams and preserves, paper craft, beading, China painting and more; as well as the all new $1000 Liberty Best Scone competition.

And what show would be complete without the food, glorious food?

The Show Society's all day BBQ steak and sausage sandwiches are on offer from early brekky until close; or there is the ladies auxiliary canteens offering affordable home style food from 9am until close; and a stack of food and coffee vendors.

Our lift out features a full program of events as well as a handy site map, so all you have to do is get to the show and have some fun.
