Gympie Show set to be huge

THEY said it was going to be massive and it is – the Gympie Show’s entertainment program really does boast something for everyone.

Show administrator Melanie Green said, apart from a jam-packed three days of non-stop action, there would be the Gympie Show grand prize draw. First prize is a Harvey Norman home entertainment package valued at $11,500, consisting of a 152cm plasma television, luxurious leather lounge suite, massage chair and laptop.

Second prize is a $1000 travel voucher from Travelscene and third prize a $500 fuel voucher from Devery’s Service Station.

“This is going to be huge,” Ms Green said.

“People (15 years and over) need a valid entry for Saturday or a multi-day pass and they have to be present on Saturday at the draw to claim the prize and we’re going to use a cement mixer to draw the names, similar to the car draw.”

The first name will be drawn at 12.30pm, a second name at 2.30pm and the third name will be drawn at 3.30pm.

Remember, you have to be present for the draw and you must present yourself within two minutes of your name being drawn, or a redraw will take place.

The show begins Thursday with horse events, showjumping, cattle judging, puppet theatre, school band performances, fashion parades, Showtime FMX, the car giveaway, HiLux Heroes and fireworks.

Friday is People’s Day with the ever-popular grand parade showcasing the cream of the region’s livestock, Fast Ed, horse events and pedigree dog judging. Saturday sees the team penning, Grand Prize Draw, pig racing, Drawing Boards skateboarders and the championship rodeo – and much more.

The Gympie Show runs May 13, 14 and 15.
