Dimboola Show 2016: crowds delighted | PICTURES

CROWDS at Dimboola’s 133rd annual show flocked to the recreation reserve for a day in the sun on Saturday. 

Secretary Janis John said the fantastic weather brought young and old to the traditional show. 

“It went really, really well,” Ms John said. “It was a brilliant day weather wise and a great day out.”

Ms John said a van accident prevented the showbag stall from attending, but apart from the minor hiccup, the day was all smooth sailing. 

She said the chainsaw man, Brendan Kroon, wowed crowds with his intricate chainsaw carving, deftly creating masterpieces out of wood blocks. 

Ms John said the pavilion, horses and petting nursery also drew large crowds.

She said the committee believed attendance was up on previous years. 

“The flowers were beautiful. With the weather we’ve had, everyone was worried about the display, but they came out in full glory,” she said. “The craft section and children’s sections had brilliant displays from the three schools, with outstanding woodwork by the senior school. Everyone I spoke to was really thrilled.

“One young girl won the champion photograph display. She was over the moon.”

Ms John said the event’s success was all down to the dedication of Dimboola volunteers. “A lot of work goes into the show behind the scenes,” she said. “The committee and volunteers do a magnificent job.

“Without them doing their bit we wouldn’t have such a good show every year.”
