Preparations are well underway for the special 150th Milton Show.
The 2019 edition, held on Friday, March 1 and Saturday, March 2, offers two days of entertainment and attractions highlighting the many achievements of the whole community.
The show boasts a range attractions and there is something there for every one, committee member David Johnson said.
“There is the free kids’ zone, stalls, show classics including the Ute Show, whipcracking, rodeo, woodchopping, horse events, the spectacular Grande Parade and lots lots more,” Mr Johnson said.
Milton Show Society president Ken Leslie said he was “very excited” with the preparation of the “very special event” in the town’s history.
“We have had to change with the times and no longer offer ploughing competitions nor shooting matches, which were a feature of the early gatherings,” he said.
Mr Leslie said there were still many traditional activities that reflect rural people's pride in their achievements.
“From the outstanding Pavilions with the wide variety of sections catering for the creativity of the whole community, to the animal judging sections where the exhibitors and competitors display years of breeding and animal husbandry,” he said.
“We think that visitors will come away amazed and feeling very proud of living where we do.”
