The Maffra Show is set to thrill

MAFFRA and District Agricultural Show committee thinks it has put together its best show ever this Saturday.

Maffra Show prides itself on its rural livestock features of dairy beef goats and poultry.

Horse events open on Friday.

Pavilions featuring craft, cooking and rural produce are expected to be of outstanding quality.

Maffra will this year be hosting the Holstein feature show.

Alongside the traditions which make the show special, many new initiatives will enhance the show to help celebrate 125 years.

A grand parade of old farm machinery will take place from 3pm Saturday.

The food and wine court will be a hub of activity this year, featuring camp oven cooking.

Another feature this year will be bush poetry and cooking demonstrations and live music.

Morning highlights will include the Maffra Cheese Gourmet Dip Competition and the school students’ pizza challenge.

Fun spectacles in the afternoon and evening will be the Animal Wrangler, dog high jump, the pet parade, the animal nursery and Coco the Clown.

The Saturday night carnival will include a full wood chop competition, motor bike stunts, a human tractor pull, the Gator Challenge and traditional fireworks to finish off.

Committee president Tim Dwyer said the show had been put together by an enthusiastic group of local volunteers and it had been a mammoth task.

“We would love to see all of the community enjoy what we feel is a very special event,” he added.
