Marvellous Marburg

THIS weekend's 90th Marburg Show had something for everyone, bringing and estimated 3000 people to the event.

The two day program included family entertainment, such as Australian National Circle Work finals with 30 entrants and the winner set to compete at the Deniliquin Ute Must in September.

Rollover stunt cars and a much anticipated fireworks display on Saturday night also made up the fun as well the famous Marburg Melon Toss, where competitors must toss a melon into a bin.

Show committee vice president, Mal Sprenger, said the event was a success.

“The weather was kind to us for a start, it was a beautiful day and we had 3000 people through the gate which is quite a bit for a country show,” he said.

“We kept the crowed entertained the entire time and there wasn't five minutes in the whole day where there wasn't an event taking place.

“We went right into the evening especially the jet truck display; it was awesome and something you only really see at larger shows.

“There were country singers to rock bands entertaining the crowd.”

Mr Sprenger said there was a great response in all sections.

“From everything right through to needlework where there was over three hundred entries, it was great,” he said.

“We always like to see more people attend the show.”
