Organisers say 2016 Mundubbera show was a success

Show society vice-president Gayle Pott said the turnout was on par with previous years.

"I think it's been going really well, great weather, good crowd of people," she said.

"The horse events have been really well supported and the rodeo had some really good nominations.

"The rodeo draws the people in and it's good to see it well supported."

She said support for most events was strong.

"Show jumping has been going well, a smaller stud cattle section that we ran this morning that was finely contested," she said.

"My highlight has been seeing people come through and enjoying it."

Mrs Pott said the most bizarre thing she saw at the 2016 show was when Central and North Burnett Times journalist Tobi Loftus made a vegetarian sausage in the celebrity cook-off.

"That was the most bizarre thing," she said.

"It was a chickpea vegetarian sausage, called the Magic Mushroom Sausage."

Mrs Pott said the show was like a shop window for the town.

"It shows off its people, its talents, its activities, you know the things they're good at," She said

"Whether it's riding, woodchopping flowers, cakes, that's what a show is about, showcasing your talents and it brings the community together.

"This year has been well supported, especially considering it's been a little dry."

Mrs Pott said it was good that people also came forward with suggestions on how the show could improve.

"We're going through and improving sections of the show," she said.
