Celebrating 70 fantastic years in Jandowae

COMMUNITY flair and celebration will be on display this weekend at the Jandowae Show.

The Western Downs town will be honouring 70 years of the show, and the show society has planned a day full of entertainment.

Free events, stud cattle and fireworks are just a some of the activities and events on show to please all members of the family.

Jandowae Show Society president, Donna Tanner, said this year's show would be a celebration of the history of the region.

"The district has always showcased a beautiful pavilion of produce and very talented people within the arts and crafts,” Mrs Tanner said.

"The horse events are always very popular. We also have stud cattle and the schools in the last few years have participated very well.”

She said the show was an opportunity for the community to band together and embrace their town.

"Just getting everyone together for a fun day of fellowship and really remembering what the district is really good at,” Mrs Tanner said.

"Everyone is excited about putting their wares in, they are all excited about getting together and just having a relaxed, causal day where they all enjoy.”

This year's show will offer plenty for all members of the family, ranging from free activities to an evening rodeo.

"For the young families we always have some kind of free entertainment for them,” Mrs Tanner said.

"There is a range of entertainment all day. It is relaxed, it is friendly and it goes right into the night.

"We have fireworks for the first time in about 20 years.”

Show rides will be running from 10am to 9pm, while the first horse event will begin at 8am.

The show will be held at the Jandowae Showgrounds in Warra St.

Admission is $10 for an adult and $25 for a family.
