Numurkah Show has much to offer

By Country News

Numurkah Show is on its way on Wednesday, October 23, and this year's theme is best decorated boots and shoes.

The idea was conjured by Nurmurkah Agricultural and Pastoral Society. Previous themes have included poultry, sheep and grains.

A best decorated boots and shoes competition will be held after the show's opening at 1.30pm with monetary prizes on the line for the categories of women's shoes, men's shoes and children's shoes. Entries for the competition must be submitted by Tuesday, October 22.

Children are encouraged to decorate boots in the floral and craft sections of the show.

The usual attractions will be present on the day, including show jumping, sheep shearing, a cow hand-milking demonstration and an animal nursery, and there will be competitions for show-goers to guess the size of a bull and a draught horse.
