The 111th annual Murwillumbah Show kicks off tomorrow (Friday) and its ending in a burst of fireworks on Saturday night is bound to boost numbers of those attending.

Free entry for both days should ensure no queues – at least not at the gate!

As well as all the usual exhibits of stock and produce at Murwillumbah showground, the ring events are a popular draw. All prize-winning livestock take part in the traditional Grand Parade just before the official opening of the show.

For more information and program visit the show’s website www.murwillumbahshowground.com.
