The Little River Show has something for everyone with a wide variety of events, so whether you’re interested in livestock, decorative arts, the grand parade or many of the side attractions and stands, there’s bound to be something to take your fancy.
Plan your day:
- 7.30am – Dog Trials
- 8am – Horses classes start
- 9.30am / 12noon – Magic Shows with Josh Grimaldi
- 10am – Balloon fun
- 11am – Kids Cup Cakes Comp – decorate a cup cake and win a grand prize!
- 12.30pm Dog High Jump
- 2pm Peninsula to Plate Grand Final with Richard Till
- 3.30pm Sheep Shearing Competition
The equestrian and livestock events and judging start the show at 8am, with the first competitors in the horse section taking to the many rings in the show grounds.
Entries for the sheds – photography, wool, arts & crafts, baking & preserves, flowers and fruit and veg – are also able to be received from 8am, with most sections ready for judging to commence at 10am. All sheds and halls are closed for judging and then reopened to the public once their scrutinizing has taken place.
Other attractions at the show include woodchopping displays, a petting farm for the little ones, displays of vintage machinery and motors as well as trade stands and food and drinks carts.
The 2018 Show sees the return of the Peninsula to Plate Competition. Celebrating the very best of locally grown lamb on both the hoof and plate, the competition for honours at the next show will no doubt prove to be as fierce as the last.
Celebrity Chef Richard Till will be making the Judges’ mouths water with the entries in the grand final at 2pm in the Peninsula to Plate Marquee.
