Kilmore shows off


IT was a beautiful day on Saturday to celebrate the Kilmore community at the 156th Annual Kilmore Agricultural Show.

With a wide range of talents on display, families got to enjoy blade shearing demonstrations, farm dog trials, camel rides, pedal-powered smoothies, balloon animals, and everything in between.

Emergency services hosted an interactive demonstration, providing helpful information heading into summer as children tackled the high-pressure CFA water hose or donned a checkered blue cap.

As always, home crafts covered a broad spectrum of entries, ranging from the classic boiled fruit cake right through to the best decorated gumboot.

The signature Christmas pudding competition garnered plenty of traction, with exhibitors coming from as far as Queensland to enter their best festive dish.

Painting, photography, woodwork and floral art all highlighted the incredible local talent raised in the Mitchell Shire, while the small dog dash and dog high jump showcased our most talented four-legged friends.
