Laidley Show Ball boasts colour, action and drama
IT HAD all the elements of a great script with plenty of colour, action and drama.
A full house packed the Laidley Cultural Centre on Saturday night for the annual Laidley Show Ball, with more than 300 people in attendance.
The colour and action came courtesy of a veritable rainbow of colour in the ball gowns, backed up by some wonderful dancing, while the drama centred on who would receive the coveted Show Girl, Show Queen and Matron sashes.
In the end, Amy Litfin took out the coveted Miss Show girl crown for 2015, edging out Tegan Hall for the title.
"All I can say is thank you to the Laidley Show Society, and this is such an honour," Ms Litfin said, after her name was announced.
Other winners on the night included Kathryn McCook, who took out Show Matron, and Show Queen, Amanda Chambers.
With the crowd celebrating Ms Litfin's announcement as the Show Girl, ball organiser John Keehn made sure there was still a twist in the tale, making his own shock announcement.
"After five years as organiser, my wife and I are retiring," Mr Keehn said.
