Mt Perry Show pleases patrons

KNOWN for its traditional country feel and variety of attractions, Mt Perry Show had another fantastic year of entertainment.

And Miss Showgirl 2018 Courtney Wallace said nothing beats the feeling of watching the fireworks lighting up the showgrounds after the sun goes down; a celebration of everyone's contributions.

"It's so nice to see the community come together and appreciate what our town has to offer,” she said.

"As Showgirl I've been able to meet a lot of new people.”

Mt Perry has been home for Miss Wallace since she can remember and this year she volunteered to be the face of it.

"I hope the tradition continues because it's a great experience that comes with a lot of pride,” she said.

Enjoying the day as much as Miss Wallace, Marie Fitzpatrick travelled all the way from Woombye on the Sunshine Coast to enter her dog Charlie in the Champion Dog Show.

"There was actually another dog show back home that we could have entered instead,” Ms Fitzpatrick said.

Her dog Charlie took home the title of Best Puppy of Breed.

"We chose to come here because it's just the nicest environment,” she said.

"Nothing beats a country show like this.”

Mt Perry Show Society Secretary Kerry Bettiens said the show is a continual success because it offers something for everyone.

"Everyone enjoys coming because you can find such variation,” she said.

"There was something going on in every corner for people of all interests.”
