Show: Day One Recap

DAY ONE of the 147th Dalby Show did not disappoint the thousands of people who flocked to the Dalby Showgrounds on Friday.

There were plenty of people through the gates by 9am, and the numbers continued to steadily grow as the day went on.

The undercover arena provided entertainment for those looking for variety, with remote control cars, barrel races and trick riding throughout the day.

On the outside, sideshow alley was buzzing with excitement, with kids and kids at heart enjoying jumping castles, games and of course dodgem cars.

The Farmers Challenge was a definite highlight of the night time entertainment, with the audience lapping up the entertainment as our politicians took to the arena.

Mayor Paul McVeigh with state politician Pat Weir and federal politician David Littleproud stepped out of the world on politics to try their hand at the course.

While it was an admirable performance, their was little to be desired in their puzzle solving and Weet-Bix eating.
