Taroom Show sure to tantalise all senses
PATRONS at this year’s Taroom Show will not be disappointed – with an action packed program headlined by plenty of big names and new additions in place, there will be something for the entire family to enjoy.
The Taroom Show Society will host the Queensland Showjumping Championships, on top of their normal ring program.
The horse action begins on Sunday, May 1 with the dressage competition and a Hunter horse feature under lights.
On Monday, May 2 all other rings will commence, and the showjumping championships will get under way.
The cattle sections will be judged from 9am on Monday.
There is more than $20,000 worth of prizes and cash up for grabs between the stud and commercial sections.
The stud section will host a Simmental feature show this year, and the prestigious Super Bull Challenge on Monday afternoon should prove to be quite a spectacle.
The pavilion has a number of new initiatives this year, including a women’s only welding competition which was introduced in response to the extremely popular men’s cooking competition.
The pavilion will also hold a live judging demonstration at 10am on Monday morning, so people can gain an understanding of how competitions are judged.
The Santos GLNG Town and County Pavilion is back bigger and better than last year, with more trade sites and displays booked.
There will be presentations and demonstrations throughout the two days of the show on a variety of topics.
The grand parade on Tuesday will be held at noon, while the official opening will take place at 1pm.
The show will be opened by John Schumann, the former lead singer of the popular band Redgum.
He will perform a concert with Hugh McDonald and Alex Black from 3pm on Tuesday, May 2 which is presented by Rural and Remote Mental Health.
