Plans on track ahead of show

THE countdown to Stanthorpe's Agricultural Show is on, with just over a month until it returns to kick-off the Queensland show circuit.

Show favourites including FMX Kaos and The Crack Up Sisters and sideshow alley will return, with new attractions being added.

More classes have been added, including more to the prime cattle to showcase the beef industry.

As part of the prime cattle auction, a charity cattle auction for Lifelight, with all proceeds donated to charity.

Ringmaster Teena Wilcock said everything was looking good for the ring.

"In the ring we've got all the usual classes and we're hoping for a lot of support from local horses and riders,” she said.

This year, the show will run over three days, with breed classes and a number of other attractions on the Sunday.

Stanthorpe Agricultural Society President Brett Boatfield said the showgrounds were in peak condition.

"The grounds haven't looked better, (since) we employed our groundsman Steve Williams,” he said.

Mr Boatfield said the day wouldn't be possible without the help of the sponsors, including JJ Richards, Wilshire and Co, and the Community Bank, who have gotten on board and will provide water and ponchos.

More parking will also be available this year for showgoers, via Club Rd.

The 2017 Stanthorpe Show will take place Friday-Sunday, February 3-5.

Schedules are out now and can be found in certain stores around Stanthorpe, including the newsagents, or downloaded from www. stanagsociety.com.au.
