On with the show after years of rain

THE biggest event on the Luddenham calendar just got bigger. The 110th Luddenham Show is on March 1 and 2 at the revamped Luddenham Showground that has a new arena fence and freshly painted bar and kitchen facilities.

This year's country show takes on extra significance after the previous two years were affected by rain.

The showground is one of only three in the state still owned entirely by the community and a huge show is needed for the show's long-term future and upkeep of the grounds.

As always the bull-riding and sheepdog trials will headline the vast array of country activities. Other competitions set to entertain the crowd include the dog high jump, bush ironman, the yank-a-ute race and show staples like horse classes and cattle and poultry judging and woodchopping.

The two-day family event will feature a range of entertainment.

The entertainment will include:

■ Arts and crafts, cooking, photography and flower displays;

■ Stage entertainment featuring various singers, dance troupes and a magician;

■ Fireworks;

■ Moto-x riders; and

■ Circus Ringbarkus, the Australian humorous travelling dog show.
