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.

The show has something for all, including heritage and trade displays, dog show, sideshow alley, animal nursery, beef cattle judging, and a bull and bronc ride spectacular.

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