What to expect at the Murgon Show

GUESTS can look forward to some exciting new entertainment at the Murgon Show this year.

According to show society president Alan Trim, he thinks show-goers should have high expectations for what's to come on Friday and Saturday, March 15 and 16.

"We have some new things to present to the public, and lots of new entertainment, especially for families, with some clowns in the pavilion,” he said.

On the Friday, Mr Trim said the show would kick off at 4pm with the Stockman's challenge horse program, followed by junior judging in prime cattle and stud beef.

Mr Trim said there would be Barambah pottery on site for those who enjoyed the arts, as well as new displays of photography, drawings and paintings.

There will also be some cookery school work on show as well as garden produce.

Mr Trim said bird lovers would also enjoy the array of birds set up for show, including parrots and budgies.

When it comes to larger displays and entertainment, Mr Trim said the show society was expecting a fairly large show for the stud beef cattle on Saturday morning.

Dairy cattle will also be on-show in the morning, and the usual horses will be in the centre ring.

For those who are fans of cars, you won't want to miss the ute show display, as well as Kingaroy Vintage tractors being on display all day.

Mr Trim said he's also excited for the Tractor Pull Display for V8 Modified Tractors at 3pm, and also expects the fun to draw in a good crowd.

Of course, you can't forget about their fireworks, which will be set off at 7pm on Saturday.

For those wanting to get involved, make sure you head along and support the Murgon Show this weekend.
