Cummins Show huge success

A STRONG crowd made the most of fine weather on Saturday for the 108th Cummins Show.

President Raymond Whillas said the show this year was "a huge raving success" with gate takings up on last year.

He said pavilion entries were up from 1000 in 2018 to 1500 this year and the wool section was three times bigger than it was in 2018.

Mr Whillas said the committee's continuing efforts to create an event for the whole family were paying off.

"Things have been picking up each year," he said.

"We'll continue to look for and explore new ideas and listen to the community."

He said among the highlights were the speed shearing competition finals and the pasture trial walks.

"The feedback we've had has been extremely positive," he said.

Mr Whillas said the Lions also recorded a record profit selling donuts and hot chips and many of the food stalls had sold out by the end of the day.

He said there was a good crowd at the show for the whole day and there were about 300 people in the audience for the speed shear grand final at 4pm.

"There were lots positives out of it," Mr Whillas said.

"A huge thank you to everyone that supports the show, the sponsors, exhibitors, businesses and the volunteers."
