Article excerpt

Byline: Donna Jones

THIS year's Gympie Show will be jammed packed with everything great this region has to offer.

Quality fresh fruit and vegetables, baked goods, handicrafts and art displays will reign in the pavilion.

There will be plenty of live entertainment on the pavilion stage with Alice Benfer, Sista Lee, Gympie Community Orchestra, Cooloola Christian College Jazz Band, James Nash State High School Academy of Creative Arts Vocal Group, ukelele players and many more all scheduled to perform over the three days.

Plus, there will fashion parades, zumba demonstrations, Miss Donna the magician, and mini pageants to keep the action in the pavilion ticking over.

In the Apex dining room you will find a new level of refinement with high teas available from 9am-5pm and wine and cheese platters from 5-9pm, all prepared by Josephine from Avalon Fare Catering.

Anything to do with livestock you can find on display in the ring, with harness racing and trots, showjumping, dog trials and even pig races for a little lighthearted fun.

World-class horseman Guy McLean will also be wowing the crowds with his amazing horses.

There is $2000 on offer for the best led steer or heifer in the Prime Cattle section and first female Prime Cattle judge Tania Hartwig will cast her expert eye over the entrants to help determine who will take home the cash.

For the first time, the International Junior Barrel Racing competition will be held at the Gympie Show with competitors, all under the age of 18 from four different countries, vying for the trophy.

For three nights, the stars will erupt over the Show with fireworks, sponsored by Tom Grady, each night about 7.30pm.

For your chance to win $1000, head to the Gympie Show website to get your entry for the Guess the Colour competition.

Follow the instructions to enter and if you correctly guess the colour of the final firework of the evening, you could win $1000.
