Editorial: Show an amazing place to be

Editorial: AFTER living in Gympie for 46 years and two days the one weekend I look back on more fondly than any other is the Gympie Show weekend.

Growing up in Gold City, Show weekend was the time of year all kids looked forward to.

I can remember talking for weeks with my mates about what rides we were going to try out and who we were going to meet at the Show.

It was an exciting time.

Things have changed a fair bit since I was a kid but I still get that same warm feeling every time I drive over Kidd Bridge on a Thursday night and see the lights of Side Show Alley in the distance.

The Show features all that's good about our region.

It's a place we showcase our diverse economy and people.

It's a place to meet friends, a lot who we haven't seen since last year, and have a great time.

Over recent years our Show has struggled a little, but this year is looking good. I hope you all get out there today and make friends and memories that will last a lifetime.
