106th Cummins Show set to be bigger again


The Cummins Show is set to return for another action-packed day of family fun on Saturday, in the 106th iteration of the event.

After the great success of last year, which saw a sub-branch of the organising committee take the reigns on entertainment, organsiers are anticipating another big day.

Some good luck with the weather saw a huge turnout, as did the extra work that went into creating and advertising the entertainment.

Organisers are hoping that the reputation built last year will bring patrons back, as will the adding of something new to the line up to further entice people through the gate.

This year will see the return of the market marquee, with organisers saying they have had so many stall holders apply for a spot that there will be an additional stall display space.

The kids zone, wine and cheese bar, live music will also be returning, and there is the addition of fashion stalls and a fashion parade at this years show. 

This advertising feature has been sponsored by the following businesses. Click the links to learn more.

New competition sections include Jenni's Bar for Home Brew and Smoked Meats, which is paying homage to past A&H Society secretary Jenni Stephenson-Colbert. 

Some new additions in zorb balls and archery tag, along with the bubble soccer from last year will mean there is plenty of action for young and old alike.

Crowd favourite Old McDonald's Farm will of course be back, while the addition of a massage stall for the mums and dads carrying the showbags will be perfect.

The scavenger hunt is another new addition and there are tons of show categories that could keep the kids busy in the lead up to the show, including photography, a scarecrow competition and baking. A crowd favourite is also the blokes baking category.

Team penning will also be taking place at the showgrounds over the show weekend, as well as horse events in the arena.

Organisers have gone to extra efforts to secure sponsorship for the Cummins Show, so that they can provide as much of the entertainment as possible for a gold coin donation only - making it a much more affordable day out for families.

Gates will open at the Cummins Showgrounds at 6.30am.
