Roll up for spectacular fun
The cakes will soon be in the oven, the photos are being finalised, and the kids’ favourite – the rides – will arrive in the coming days for next week’s 120th annual Maclean show.
Fresh from competing at the Sydney Royal Easter Show, where it claimed Senior and Grand Champion Brahman Bull, Glen Pfeffer’s prize-winning Mogul Yalumba will be one of the many highlights.
After competing at the show since the mid-1970s, Mr Pfeffer said it was a social highlight of his year.
“It’s a great social get together of fellow exhibitors,” he said.
Mr Pfeffer encouraged people to enter the Maclean Show, with categories from handicraft, to poultry, to art, open to people of all ages.
“The Maclean show is probably one of the only events held in the district that every member of the public can contribute to,” he said.
Other things not to be missed include the wood chopping, horse events, Old McDonald’s Farm and Steve the snake man.
On Wednesday night, the show’s premier events, the fireworks, the outback extravaganza and the demolition derby will entertain the whole family.
Admission to the show is $7 for adults and $5 for children and pensioners on Tuesday, with Wednesday’s premier day costing $15 for adults, $8 for children and pensioners or $40 for a family ticket. For details contact the
