THE final touches are being added to the rides, and the dagwood dogs are being delivered.

Bringing together people from all over the region, it's a celebration of our city's diverse community under clear autumn skies.

There's a handy map so you can plan your day, and stories of the people who make the show such a special event, from woodchoppers to the judges who hand out the awards, plus Robert Stevenson shares his secrets from his career doing firework displays.
