The Bourke Show

The Bourke Show came back better than ever at the weekend, with more than 1200 people through the turnstiles and a whole lot of fun and excitement for the community.

The day started early with the show jumping and ring events and the pavilion was packed with exhibits when the doors opened at 9.30am.

Patrons were treated to a display of art, craft, jams, pickles and produce by some of Bourke’s best cooks, gardeners, and artists.

Early events included the hotly contested Dog and Pet Show, the whip cracking and the cuteness of the Miss and Master Bourke events.

There was something for everyone throughout the day, from the Historic Vehicle Club Show’n’Shine to the Young Farmers Challenge and Dash for Cash and the announcement of Bourke’s contender for the NSW Young Woman competition, Charlotte McGrory.

Bourke Show President Grace Ridge was thrilled at the turnout and said she had never seen the Showgrounds look so good, thanks to the hard work of committee members, volunteers, the Bourke Shire Council, and the Bourke Picnic Race Club.

“It was a fantastic day, it was great to have a show again and the community really came out and supported us,” Grace said.[…]
