The weather did not disappoint for the 2017 annual PAH&I Show held last Friday and Saturday September 1 and 2.
The action all began on Friday morning with the popular dog show event, it then continued into the evening with the pavilions being open to the public as well as all of the excitement of sideshow alley, the tractor pull practice, the annual fireworks spectacular, the Red Shed and of course, the very entertaining children’s events, including the tug-of-war and three legged race, followed by the adult’s farmer’s challenge.
The pavilions once again housed a very large variety of local and district entries showcasing individual talent in a range of categories including photography, needlework, floral, produce, children’s artwork, cakes and condiments and much more as well as various stalls from organisations, schools and clubs.
Saturday saw perfect weather with huge numbers adorning the Grenfell showground. Organisations such as CWA, Rotary and Lions displayed their culinary services, much to the delight of the large crowd
Spectators were treated to an array of exciting attractions including the popular yard dog trials as well as a number of horse ring events, pony club, sheep and cattle judging, poultry judging, tractor pull finals, car show, antique engine display, sideshow alley and more.
The official opening was made by David Peters, President of the Agricultural Society of NSW, this was followed by long time show official Joan Eppelstun receiving her “Life Membership” badge from show president Peter Brown.
The winner of the 2017 showgirl and winners of the junior showgirls and stockmen recipients were then announced. Congratulations to Grenfell’s 2017 Showgirl Becky Eastaway and to Junior Showgirl Tara Anderson.
