Stall holders, competitors and show-goers will be rolling in for the 2019 Clunes Agricultural Show this weekend.
In its 159th year, the show has found continuous success, attracting big crowds and plenty of entries for its wide range of competitions.
The show had a record turn out last year with over 2000 event-goers and Clunes and District Agri- cultural Society president John Drife said he’s hoping for similar numbers this weekend.
“We’re not sure how many people we’ll get this year but given the weather is forecast to be reasonably pleasant we’re expecting to get a good turn out again,” he said.
“Last year we had record gate numbers with between 2000 and 3000 people so we’re hoping for that again.”
Some of this year ’s special attractions include a local food and wine pavilion, whip cracking demonstrations, dog jump, mechanical bucking bull, ferret racing and ladies’ wood splitting competition.
The action will kick off at the Clunes Showgrounds this Saturday with gates opening at 7 am.
Admission is $15 for adults and $5 for children under 16 with family packages available.
