THE Horsham Show is set to thrill at the weekend with the event celebrating its 141st year.
Horsham Agriculture Society executive administrator Andrea Cross said the event would feature a large array of events and activities for people of all ages.
"We have some new entertainment this year. Flipping Disc Dogz will be performing and they are fresh off Australia's Got Talent," she said.
"We're also introducing a miniature horse and pony show. At the silo bar near the river we will be having musical walk-ups and live music all day, as well as dance performances.
"Towards the evening, we'll be auctioning off yabbies and running yabbie races for charity. A portion of the money raised will go towards Dolly's Dream and Burrumbuttock Hay Runners."
Another new feature of the show is the Agriculture Playground which is constructed completely from recycled materials.
"It was a brainchild of one of our committee members Emily Friedrichsen," Mrs Cross said.
"It's essentially a maze with a giant haystack pyramid in the middle, along with a sandpit which is filled with ping-pong balls. If the balls are brought into the show office, children can win a prize."
Mrs Cross said the showgrounds had undergone a number of improvements and changes since last year's event.
"We've had a few sheds knocked down for more car parking space. We're also opening up the J. Weldon Power Memorial Gates off McBryde Street which we haven't done for a number of years," she said.
"We've also flipped the map, so sideshow alley is at the other end to what it usually is."
Entry to the show will be $5 per person after 5pm on both Saturday and Sunday. Mrs Cross said she hoped it would attract more people to the twilight carnival.
"We want people to come for their evening meal and we have some special food being brought in just for that," she said.
"We're hoping it will add to that real festival atmosphere that we've been trying to create. The community has responded really well to that."
The 2019 Horsham Show will be at Horsham Showgrounds on September 28 and 29.
The show will open from 5pm to 9pm on Saturda,y and from 10am to 10pm on Sunday. The fireworks show will be on Sunday night.
Mrs Cross said people could find more information at the show's website.
