THE Keith and Tintinara Show Society (KTSS) have once again raised the bar on attractions for what’s looking like another successful year.
This year’s show is set to go off with a bang, following the introduction of freestyle motocross crew Whip Industries and the official opening by former AFL CEO Wayne Jackson.
Now in its 79th year, KTSS president, Glen Simpson says the key to a good show is all about having enough attractions for all ages and genders.
“You need enough entertainment and attractions; it’s got to be exciting, new and a lot of fun.”
This year’s fair boasts some new and some much enjoyed activities from years past.
For the blokes, 10am will signal the turn of the key on some of the most exciting fuel injected events including the motocross, aeroplane engines, V12 motors, lawn mower tractor pull.
This year’s latest attraction is guaranteed to attract females, blokes and kids, the freestyle motocross by Whip Industries.
Secured by South East Motorcycle Centre, Whip Industries pit-bike riders will perform three shows, performing back flips, supermans whips and many more.
Women’s activities for the day will start from 9am with horses, with three rinks and high quality competitors expected.
Also on display will be MLA Butchering demonstrations, cooking sampling displays, arts and craft at the basketball stadium, with competition entries open at 12 noon following judging in the morning.
Kid’s entertainment will start with PA announcements for train rides, side show alley will be alive with bumper cars, clowns and a lolly drop on the oval via plane at 5pm, and of course show bags.
Not forgotten is also the Young Farmer Challenge.
Teams of four enter the competition where they have to cut and join poly pipe, skull iced coffee or chocolate milk, roll a bale of hay plus much more and the quickest team to finish are the ultimate winners.
Of course the show wouldn’t be complete without the annual Australian Sheaf Tossing Championship with show committee members expecting some international sheaf competitors entering.
The Rural Ambassador and Young Rural Ambassadors will be presented with their awards, the pavilion will be full with trade sites, and a live band will play into the evening.
If you have something that you would like to enter make sure that you get a copy of the show book or check the website for the details and entry forms.
