The numbers may have been a little down on last year but according to Pambula Show secretary, Gail Cummins that did nothing to detract from the overall success of the day.
Behind the scenes the day started with some excitement as the bantam rooster that Tabitha Bilaniwskyj-Zarins had lined up for the chook washing demonstration, took off.
Amid much laughter several people chased and caught the lively rooster allowing Ms Bilaniwskyj-Zarins to demonstrate not only how to wash him but also how to hypnotise him.
Ms Cummins said that the re-instated poultry showing was a success with a lot of interest and questions from younger members of the audience.
Children also loved Toot the Magic Clown and local girl, Lisa Heffernan who was teaching circus skills and balloon modelling was “like a magnet to the kids,” Ms Cummins said.
“The pavilion was a triumph. There were more entries than ever before,” Ms Cummins said.
“In fact there were so many entries that some categories needed more tables and rearrangement to fit everything in. Thanks to the chief pavilion steward Shirley Sproakes and Ken Driscoll who spent days setting up; it’s an enormous task.”
