Mullumbimby Show’s champion pie eaters will be at it again on Saturday.

Forget the sideshows, pie-eating is the big attraction of the Mullumbimby Show for these young townsfolk.

It’s fair to say that the town’s show, which was on its knees a couple of decades ago, has reinvented itself with the old adage ‘something for everyone’ in mind.
