Mackay show set to draw crowds


Rides, fireworks, fairy floss and dagwood dogs! 
Mackay show opens from at 9:00 this morning, providing three fun-filled days of entertainment.
Manager of the Show Association Cassie Waterson says there's plenty of exciting things to look forward to: 
"Full agriculture program, full equestrian, cattle, we have our local cane display, we have all the normal pavilions of the arts and craft as well as an animal farm, and also all the entertainment, show bags and side-show ally," says Ms Waterson. 
Ms Waterson also says they're expecting bumper crowds. 

"The year off I think everyone is really keen, all the showmen are here they are ready to go and the grounds look amazing for a great show this week," Ms Waterson says.
