THE show must go on.

There was proof of that old adage as the Marburg Show held most of the scheduled events despite the terrible weather on the weekend.

Marburg Show committee chief ring steward Don West said the gates were thrown open at lunch time, despite the driving rain and cool conditions, to entice people to the showgrounds, with many of the ring events still going ahead.

"The weather was a great disappointment for us all after all the hard work the committee put in," Mr West said.

Every cloud proved to have a silver lining, with the cattle events still running along with undercover entertainment, the jet truck and the ever-popular ute muster.

"Despite the weather we ended up having a reasonably successful event," Mr West said.
