The 2018 Clare Show is set to be filled with more entertainment than ever before.
This entertainment will include plenty of children’s activities in the morning while the main pavilion is closed, according to Clare Agricultural and Horticultural Society secretary Cheryl Koglin.
“In the past, there hasn’t been a lot to do while the pavilion was closed, so we decided to fix that problem this year,” Cheryl said.
There will be a lot of entertainment on Horrocks Highway with the Amazing Drumming Monkeys putting on a variety show, the SES holding a crash demonstration and the farm animals located on Horrocks Highway as well.
“We’re hoping by changing it up it will lead people down to where all the animals are,” Cheryl said.
“We’ve got a big cattle program, sheep, yard dogs and alpacas all at the northern end of the showgrounds.”
No more than 63.5cm high, miniature goats will also feature at the show this year.
“To get people from the carpark at the southern end we have limousine golf buggies and drivers who will take people from one end of the showgrounds to the other,” Cheryl said.
“There should be no reason why people can’t get down to the northern end of the showgrounds because there is a lot happening down there.”
Yet another activity the kids can take part in while the main pavilion is closed is the Showgirl/Showboy competition at 11am.

The governor of South Australia, Hieu Van Le, will be opening the show at 11.30am.
In the afternoon there will be a work boot toss sponsored by Allingtons Outpost and a hat toss sponsored by Halls Hats, with vouchers for the winners.
At the new bar area at the top of the main street will be Lost & Found music duo and down at the Down Under Bar MGB will be playing.
“There are a lot of new things at the show this year, but we still have all the old favourites like the horses in action, pony hacks, grand parade and the dog jump competition,” Cheryl said.
“We will also have a mechanical bull ride, a photo booth, a face painter and there will be helicopter rides.”
Another positive for the show this year is a full trade site plus a variety of new food stalls. Cheryl is looking forward to the honey sesame prawns, oysters and coffee.
Strawberries Galore will also be at the show with fresh strawberries which will be cut in half, so come and support our strawberry growers.
The core base of the show, the agriculture, machinery and car trade site, will be at the southern end of the showgrounds.
Head to the show on Saturday, October 13 to take in all of the new attractions located throughout the grounds.
