The Rylstone-Kandos Show Society is getting ready to open the gates for their 75th annual event, which will take place this weekend on Saturday, February 23.
As usual, the grounds are looking lovely, thanks to the groundkeepers and even though the forecast is for rain, Show Society Secretary Carolyn Cannon said that she’s will try to ignore the weather and hope for the best.
“Our VIP this year is David Foster OAM who is a world renowned woodchopper and we’re really looking forward to him attending,” Mrs Cannon said.
Mrs Cannon said Mr Foster was extremely passionate about men’s health in rural areas. Because of this, the Rylstone-Kandos Show Society had set up a health precinct in the main showground where men could find out information on their health.
“He’ll also be opening the show and having a wander around to some of the events,” Mrs Cannon said.
As always there will be something at the show for everyone.
The Luskintigers Tiger Moths planes will be back with an aerial display that will stun the crowd and Mrs Cannon said that the society was expecting big numbers in the horse and show dog events.
“The horse events are always popular and we’re expecting a lot of people to turn up for them,’ she said.
As well as the animal events happening around the grounds, Mrs Cannon expects the pavilion to be “groaning with the amount of produce entered”.
The pavilion will be open to the public this Friday night from 6pm to 8.30pm and of course, it’ll be open all day Saturday.
“There is going to be a Belly Dancing troupe at 7pm and the KR Gym Connection performance, which was so good last year, will be on again also,’ Mrs Cannon said.
There will also be yard dog trials, stationary motors, trade stands, food venues, bar, live music and the carnival area with rides and entertainment for the whole family.
Later on there will be a gumboot throwing for all ages and the show will end with fireworks that will light up the sky.
“The fireworks were brilliant last year and the same guy has decided to come back this year as well. It will all be happening this weekend,” Mrs Cannon said.
