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.
So while the parade of big rigs will be right up some big boys’ alley, the showgirls take in quite another demographic (or perhaps not).
And while events such as the beef cattle show, sheep shearing and poultry pavilion, were doubtless seen at the first Mullum Show 107 years ago, the pet show probably wasn’t.
All the tried and true favourites are there, including craft, photography, cake, flower produce displays.
But new events like laser skirmish and motocross are keeping the show well and truly up with the times.
Entertainment will be provided by Spaghetti Circus, comedian Ellen Briggs and music from Celia Adams, River Valley Express and One 2 Many.
And a high-class talent quest will be judged by none other than Mullum Music Festival director Glen Wright.
Saturday night will end with a boom as the town gets showered in fireworks.
Sunday sees the pet show, trotting show ‘n’ shine, trotting finals, FMX daredevils and the demolition derby.
Entry is $10 per person per day at the gate, with under 13s get
