LOWOOD Show Society Secretary, Janeen Schulz, said this year would be a year of wide entertainment.
“We have the demolition derby after the fireworks this year and we have five cars nominated already, and I think it's basically the last car standing, so it should be a lot of fun to watch,” she said.
“We have a top DJ in Mick Oberle and of course Magical Mal, who will be some roving entertainment for the kids.
“We also have Kathy Sunners from Esk performing.
“There is pumpkin rolling for the kids and a new event that is basically a relay event on horses through an obstacle course with the object of the game to put a melon in a bin.”
Ms Schulz said they were expecting a great turnout.
“We have the ute competition which will be great, and the judging for the fine arts, photos and crafts gets started early this week, and the cooking, produce and fruit and vegetables starts on Friday,” she said.
“In the dog showing section we already have 43 entries, which is really good for us.
“We have the young judges for stud beef section in Lowood this year on Saturday after the parade.”
Ms Schulz said there were a few new additions to the showgrounds since last year's show.
“We have lights around the ring for night performances and we also have the Rail Trail Stopover horse yard that was built and is being used for the first time at this show,” she said.
“We are also breaking in the brand new kitchen which was paid for from a grant from the Gambling Community Benefit Fund.
“The grounds are looking great as well, so it will be great to have everyone there enjoying it.”
Ms Schulz said the fireworks display would be meaningful as well as spectacular.
“There are a few people that have passed away in the past year in the community and the Show Society and so there will be some special fireworks in memory of these people.”
