Preparations are well underway for this year’s annual Parkes Show to be held Monday 29th, Tuesday 30th and Wednesday, 31st August. Show President, Garry O’Brien, advises: “Schedules and tickets are now available from the Show Office in Welcome Street. It’s time to put together your entries in anything from sponges to sheep, photos to ponies and everything in between. There are also some fun activities to enter for the kids in the Arts and Craft, Needlework and Cooking sections.”
Show tickets can be bought at Cunninghams IGA and Byrne Clothing, and of course the Show Office. Tickets purchased before the Show give you unlimited entry over the three days for just $5 for “schoolies” (anyone attending school), $15 for adults, and kids not yet attending school are free. This is an amazing deal as each entry ticket once the show starts is $15 per entry! Buy your tickets before the show and go into the draw to win one of the $500 open orders from our participating stores. Please note that concession tickets ($10) are only available from the Show Office.
“The Show Committee is working hard to ensure the Showground is in perfect order. NorthParkes Mines have been one of our major show sponsors for many years. Each year they also send a large team of workers to help clean up the showground, which is greatly appreciated,” said Garry. “McPhersons Parts and Service New Holland is our new 2016 major sponsor.
McPhersons is celebrating 30 years of servicing our community – it is great to see we have community minded, pro active businesses like NorthParkes, McPhersons and others that are willing to help make our annual Show a success.”
