Maclean Show's big bang
AS usual, the annual Maclean Show finished with a bang. However, the bang during the final session on Wednesday night wasn't from fireworks.
For the first time, show organisers decided to close the program with a demolition derby. Maclean Show Society president Brian Ferrie said it was a great way to finish the show.
“We had a good crowd. The fireworks and the derby brought a lot in,” he said.
“The demolition derby went well. The conditions made it even more spectacular.”
He rated the fireworks display as the best yet.
It may have been a slippery affair for the derby drivers but thankfully the day received little more than a few showers.
Mr Ferrie said Maclean received a shower about 5pm but was almost rain-free other than that on the final day.
The show's gate takings of $14,000 were comparable with other years. And, Rotary held its usual cook-up to help raise funds for worthy local causes.
