CANUNGRA is preparing to stage a cracker of a show this year, with organisers expecting the number of punters to be twice as many as last year.
Canungra Show Society spokesman Lee McKenzie-McKinnon said about 3000 people turned up last year but if the Canungra Rodeo was anything to go by, the showgrounds could be a little more crowded on August 25.
“We had about 7000 people turn up for the rodeo (on July 14) and we had to close the gates,” he said.
“We are encouraging people to pre-purchase their tickets online to avoid disappointment as we are expecting a big crowd.”
Mr McKenzie-McKinnon said the 2018 Canungra Show would feature a big line up of musicians including Mental as Anything, The Point O Five and Electrik Lemonade, Sally Skelton and the Haystack Mountain Hermits.
“We will also have new events including a dog show with a heap of different categories and competitions for best dressed dogs and dogs that look like their owners,” he said.
“There will be more free activities this year, including laser skirmish, bubble football and camel rides in Moriarty Park.”
The show will also feature all the old favourites like wood chopping, horses, cattle and agriculture displays.
There will be a fireworks display at 7.30pm
Tickets are $15 for adults, $5 for aged pensioners and children (aged 3 to 15) and $35 for a family pass (2 adults, 3 children).
