The Bundaberg Show is returning to the region next week and all the show favourites will be back after the cancellation of last year’s event.
The BRC Bundaberg Show, starting on Wednesday 26 May, will feature everything from fireworks and rodeos through to all of the fun of sideshow alley, providing entertainment for the whole family.
Visitors to the show can expect to see a wide variety of exhibits according to Bundaberg Show Committee Member Trish Flynn, who said new and exciting stalls were all part of this year’s event.
“We have a lot of new local businesses attending to promote and sell their products and services,” she said.
“There is also a wide range of entertainment including SCA Medieval re-enactment displays, Bundaberg Radio Controlled Car Club displays, Viv’s Animal Nursery, a vintage machinery display and a spectacular Fireworks display on Wednesday and Thursday nights.”
With a years’ worth of work going into the planning of the show, the committee are excited to welcome as many people as possible through the gates over the three days.
“The Show Society looks forward to seeing as many people attend the event as possible,” Trish said.
“It is a great opportunity to support local businesses and the hard work of the committee over the past 12 months to bring this to life.”
Trish said there would be COVID restrictions in place at this year’s event which needed to be adhered to by those attending.
“The show will be a little different this year as we all observe COVID safe procedures and work with the relevant regulations in order to keep all patrons and volunteers safe,” she said.
“Patrons will be required to check in via QR code upon entry to the grounds, social distancing is still a requirement and hand sanitiser stations will be available.”
Ticket sales are predominantly online this year, with some tickets available at the gate on the day.
“Tickets purchased online will be scanned on entry and can only be used on the day nominated on the ticket,” Trish said.
The show is funded by income generated from gate takings and competition entry fees.
Bundaberg Regional Council was named a major sponsor of the event.
