Esk show sees rural Queensland shine
THE ESK show saw a record-breaking number of show section entrants over the weekend proving that the charm of a traditional country show cannot be underestimated.
Esk Show Society President Michael Jess was thrilled with how many entrants were recorded.
“We blasted last years numbers out of the water,” he said.
“The most we had were for the needlework and horse sections.”
Mr Jess said highlights of the show included the ute barrel racing and the live entertainment.
“The crowd and the drivers loved the ute barrel racing, which was a first for the show,” he said.
“There was also a big crowd at the bar to watch Mike Oberle perform.”
Mr Jess said the show couldn’t happen without the generous sponsors and volunteers.
“They all worked so hard, to make everything run smoothly and without them we wouldn’t have a show,” he said.
