Bribbaree is set to celebrate its 90th year of the show which has been staged since 1926 having had 1974 cancelled due to torrential rain during the week prior.
The official opening will be held at 2pm by Grace Eppelstun – the 2016 The Land Sydney Royal Showgirl and granddaughter of a previous president, Mrs Janice Hunter of 1980-84.
Along with sideshow alley and dodgem cars there will be poultry, sheep and produce exhibits, with the main and junior pavilion always drawing a vast number of exhibits.
This year a special memorabilia display commemorating the 90th year will be housed in the main pavilion with a fashion parade of dresses from by-gone years after the official opening.
Other attractions include the boys and girls running races, Kentucky Animal Farm, a lolly scramble, tug-o-war and farmers challenge, along with ‘Little People of the Show’, Miss teen, junior Showperson and Lady and Gentleman of the Show.
The show society is running a mailbox competition for locals within a radius of 50km of the village.
The yard dogs have new permanent sheep holding pens constructed by Scott Epplestun from funds donated by the Bribbaree Fishing Club to be opened at 9am on the day.
There will be horse ring events and team yarding in conjunction with the Ultimate Challenge – a new event for 2016 which features a cross country phase sponsored by Memagong Partnership, young Horse Catch phase sponsored by Walshy’s Wool and the Poly Buckjump sponsored by Young Shearing Services.
