You’re all invited to the 2019 Annual Killarney Show. Here we are again celebrating our community, our traditions, our friendships and enjoying some friendly competition.
At the Killarney Annual Show each year, we celebrate all the agricultural aspects and achievements of the community while enjoying companionship with regular friends and those we only seem to run into each year at the Show. The Show is also a great time to welcome visitors to our community.
For the kids…
Throughout the day there will be face painting, our regular roving clown and of course everyone’s old favourite Side Show Alley. There will be a fantastic kids’ area outside the pavilion with lots of different activities and unusual exhibits.
This year we will have Little Picasso’s Plaster where children will be able to paint their own plaster creation or purchase a kit to take home. On Friday night, early in the evening, there will be the Kids Ping Pong Ball Grab, (chance to win 1 pushbike + other prizes) sponsored by Warwick Ice. All ages up to Primary School age invited to participate.
Friday 22 February…
First up at 7am on Friday are the impressive Working Cattle Dog Trials in the Rodeo Arena. Commencing 8am – Killarney Show is lucky enough to present one the best and largest Prime Cattle exhibits on the Southern Downs including an auction at 11am.
Pavilion entries close at 9am and reopen from 2pm after Judging on Friday and they are available for viewing all day Saturday. Killarney is such a beautiful place, the photography alone is a must see as locals pull out their best shots. At 5pm the Black Toyota Killarney Bulls and Barrels begins in the rodeo arena. And don’t forget on the Friday evening the Kids’ Ping Pong Ball Grab.
Saturday 23 February
Gates open 9am with a programme of Stud Cattle, Woodchop, Horse Events, Showjumping, Ute Muster and an Entertainment Stage under the marquee.
The Grand Parade commences at 1.45pm on Saturday.
The Killarney Show Society has pleasure in presenting The Kent Saddlery Outback Riders at 2.45pm in the Rodeo Arena and again during the night program.
The Saturday evening programme in the Show Ring is full of family fun and entertainment. Audiences were roaring with laughter last year at the littlies motor bike racing followed by their fathers racing on the same bikes. There will also be hay cart races and potato sack races. And of course the evening would not be complete without the fireworks, sponsored by Southern Downs Regional Council, followed by the Smash Up Derby Calcutta, sponsored by Killarney Autoworks.
All up Killarney is looking forward to a fabulous year in 2019 and you are invited – check out the full programme at www.killarneyshow.org.au
