It’s showtime

Community members and organisers are counting down the sleeps until the sights and sounds of the Traralgon Show take hold this weekend.

Opening on Friday morning, the show welcomes back horse events which were cancelled last year due to football ground resurfacing at the precinct.

“They’re really good to watch. A lot of people sit in the grand stand and watch them; they’re really great to have back,” Traralgon District Agricultural Society secretary Lorraine Anderson said.

Ms Anderson hoped sunshine would draw the crowds with weather in the high 20s expected.

“It’s a great, alcohol free, family-friendly weekend,” she said.

“It’s looking really good, the school art is looking really beautiful, the pavilion isn’t quite ready, but we’re getting there.”

With more space available for traders this year, Ms Anderson said some stalls and attractions would make their debut.

“Come and have a good weekend and enjoy our local show,” she said.

“Thank you to the committee and helpers because I couldn’t do it on my own.”
