Kiama’s 168th Show nears

plantsThe organisers of this year’s Kiama Show are looking forward to the usual busy lead up to the two day event, as competitors lodge their entry forms and then bring in their items for judging.

Last year, there were more than 2000 entries in the Pavilion categories – everything from vegetables, cut flowers, baking and craft to painting, photography and home brew.

While some competitors are veterans (some would say legends), each year sees more people begin their show careers by displaying their creative efforts. Exhibits must be the original work of the exhibitor, completed in the previous twelve months.

Details: Entries in the Pavilion sections must by registered by 5pm on Tues 19 January (apart from cut flowers, entries for which close atAM_24092 - KIAMA SHOW - 2015 - PHOTO BRIAN SCOTT noon on Thurs 21 Jan).

The exhibits need to be delivered by 11am Thurs (apart from Art and Junior Art – due by 10am; and cut flowers – due by 8.30am Friday). Get full details from the Schedule or http://www.kiamashow.com.au

The entertainment line-up for this year’s Show brings back the popular and impressive D-Max Isuzu Utes, Australia’s only precision driving team. There are three opportunities on Saturday evening to see the team’s close formation driving, high speed drifts and slides, cross-overs and ramp jumps, and two wheel driving (5.30pm, 7pm and 9pm).

Friday night will feature ShowMow Racing, the crowning of this year’s Show Girl and an action packed rodeo.

Out of the ring there will be a gardening demonstration with the Compost Heap’s John Gabriele, the South Coast Scouts’ Climbing Wall, Matilda’s Farmyard and Kiama’s own Dave Evans and Tamara Campbell with their
La Petit Grande Circus. As usual, Chittick Oval will be transformed into sideshow alley.

The two days of the Show will culminate in fireworks at 9.30pm.

Details: 22 & 23 Jan, Kiama Show Ground. Day ticket $15 adult/$5 conc; $35 family of 4.
