Record numbers for Mt Larcom show

IT was a record-breaking year for the Mt Larcom Show.

More than 18,000 people walked through the showground gates throughout the weekend to take advantage of all the great events, exhibitions and entertainment the show had to offer.

While there was record-breaking attendance, this year was also the most beef entries the show had seen.

Mt Larcom Show Society president Craig Butler said there were in excess of 230 cattle on the ground.

“There were cattle everywhere, you could hardly move in the cattle pavilion.

Mr Butler said while the beef competition proved to be popular there were also a number of other popular events and competitions.

“We had a great turn-out for the poultry, the bird pavilion had a great ute muster and the side-show alley proved to be popular,” he said.

Two new rides were added to the side-show line-up this year with the ferris wheel making its first appearance at the show in 30 years.

“It’s been a really good show and a fantastic weekend,” Mr Butler said.

“I hope everyone’s had as great a time as we have.”
