Countdown on to Stanthorpe Show
THE countdown is on for the first show of the season.
Thousands will flood the showgrounds for the 137th annual Stanthorpe Show on February 1 and 2.
From sideshow alley, the wood chop, exhibition centre and even the animal nursery there will be plenty for everyone to see.
President of the Stanthorpe Show Society Cameron Gow said he was excited for yet another great show.
"It would have to have been one the busiest 12 months we've had for a long time," Mr Gow said.
"With the final fit-out finished on the current stage of our new exhibition shed extension and kitchen complex now complete, we can relax and enjoy the latest asset to our Stanthorpe community."
Mr Gow also said the showgrounds had some other new additions, which will help the show be better than ever before.
"The last year also saw grants successfully applied for and being spent on bringing the showgrounds up to speed in our ongoing grounds and buildings maintenance program."
Admission into the show is only $10 for adults, children 17 years and under $3 and to take a car in will cost $2.
The Stanthorpe Border Post Diamonds & Pearls Showgirl presentation is being held tonight.
The night has been a sell out and co-ordinator Mariel Thompson said the lucky winner will take home fantastic prizes.
"A stunning tiara awaits each winner, again donated by Goldstone Jewellers," Ms Thompson said.
She said the showgirl entrants and their committees had worked hard all year to raise much-needed funds for the show.
