The 139th Allora Show on Friday and Saturday has been declared a huge success, organisers have said.
Allora Show Society President Conrad Schnitzerling said there had been “a massive number of horses here in the ring”, with the paddock full with horse floats and trucks.
“There were also a good number of cattle, sheep poultry and goats being judged,” Mr Schnitzerling said.
“The crowds enjoyed the line-up of entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights and the wrestling ring sponsored by United Fuels proved to be a very successful addition to this year’s show.
“Side Show Alley ride operators were pleased with the takings on both nights.
“The pavilion displays did not disappoint with a lot of entries in most categories, the needle work and fine arts sections were of a high standard according to the stewards.”
This year, as a tribute to the late Phil Higgins and his baking prowess, a non-competitive baking display was held to raise money for the Melanoma Institute Australia.
Mr Schnitzerling thanked all of the entrants, visitors and especially the volunteers and sponsors.
