Harvey organisers pack two days into action-packed one

Hannelore HepburnHarvey-Waroona Reporter

It is all systems go for Saturday’s 98th Harvey Show which will pack the traditional two-day event into one, action-filled, day.

Gates open at 9am and visitors can check out the horse events, sheep, dairy and beef cattle judging kicking off in the morning.

The hall display in the recreation centre showcases hundreds of entries from home-grown produce and flowers to cooking, arts and crafts and photography.

In the poultry shed, birds of all breeds and colours will be looking their best for the judges and it will be a tough competition for the coveted Champion Bird of the Show award and most points in poultry.

Entertainment this year will take place on a new outdoor stage area on the oval and will offer something for all ages.

The little ones will enjoy the Giggle Wiggle Tickle Sparkle stage show, roving entertainers and a lolly drop orchestrated by Kite Man Michael Alvarez among other activities.

The Nolan Brothers will thrill the crowd with their dare-devil moto-trial and freestyle motorcycle skills for the first time and are an act not to be missed.

Later on the Platinum Project will return to the stage and entertain punters with well-known covers from jazz and blues to pub rock before the Alcoa family fireworks explode into the sky in a spectacular finale to the Harvey Show.

President Dom Fazzolari is confident the day will be a success.

“We are set for a great day – everything is in place and the last weeks were just spent fine-tuning,” he said.
