gentlemen, boys and girls, step right up for the 2020 Manilla Show. Kicking off
on Friday 13 March and running through to Sunday 15 March, this family-friendly
extravaganza is set to be a weekend not to miss.
For 86 years the Manilla Show has been a spotlight event on the
districts’ calendar and a great opportunity for people to witness all the
community has to offer.
President of the Manilla Show
Society, Councillor Jim Maxwell is encouraging people from near and
far to come along, get involved and enjoy the show.
“There’s so much to see and do at the Manilla Show. It’s a great way for
our community to show off all our talents and not to mention, the perfect excuse
for a weekend out with the family or to catch up with your mates.”
The theme of the 2020 Manilla Show is “Tractors” so start thinking of
items you can create for the pavilion.
The opening evening is the perfect way to kick start the weekend;
featuring fireworks and live music.
But it won’t stop there as the showground will launch into full swing
over the weekend.
Competitors will line the area for show jumping and show horse events,
crowds will flock to watch the Dog High Jump and yard dog trials, pet-lovers
will parade their furry friends for the Pet Spectacular, visitors will wander
through the pavilions lined with creative exhibitions and the kids will enjoy
the adrenalin of Side Show Alley plus the face painting, Troppo Bob will be back
with his magic show and balloon artistry
to be found in the free Kids Zone.
Cowboys and cowgirls, spectators and rodeo ringmasters will also
hoe-down for Saturday night’s pinnacle event, the Gill Bros. Twilight Rodeo.
Known as the toughest sport on dirt, the rodeo will feature poddy calf rides,
junior steer rides, novice bull rides, saddle bronc rides and more. The 2020
rodeo will also feature some novelty events which will prove to entertain the
