“This year we have some old favourites plus new attractions like Crocodile Encounters,” Delegate Show Society president Russell Buckman said.

“Laser tag was highly successful last year and so will be there again this year.

“New this year is a Punch and Judy Show by Chris Gaskin, which should amuse young and old alike.

“The pavilion will be filled with exhibits from the garden with fruit and veg and flowers as well as freshly made jams and preserves.

“A new prize this year will be $100 for the Most Successful Exhibitor in the pavilion sections C to O.”

As most exhibitors are keen contestants, whether it is growing the biggest pumpkin, creating an amazing floral bouquet or crafting a wooden toy, the community will benefit from marveling at these works of art.

“Delegate Public School always fill the pavilion with their paintings, arts and crafts, andthe photography section is growing each year, it now fills one end of the hall,”Mr Buckman said.

“A new section in the photography this year is a ‘selfie’ so all you mobile phone experts get busy.

“Photos can be printed at the Delegate RTCT Centre.”
