The Celebrating Spring theme will be found throughout the halls in the crafts, art, vegetables, flowers, design and decor and jams sections, as well as on the grounds in all the traditional show events including the grand parade at 3pm.

The chips will start to fly for the log chopping competition from 11am and the horse events will kick off early from 8.30am.

The popular Harvey Beef boning competition and the Italian sausage competition will also be returning for their second year.
