Family fun and games the focus at Kyogle

THIS year's Kyogle Show kicks off on Friday October 9 with campdraft in the main ring while Saturday night's entertainment will see a demolition derby followed by monster fireworks, proudly sponsored by PRD Realty.

During the day there will be the animal-oriented children's entertainment Kanga Gang, along with the multi-talented Pitt Family Circus.

Of course there will be livestock judging and horse ring events on Saturday.

A highlight of this year's show will be the four day championship dog show - organised by the Kyogle and District Kennel Club - starting on the Thursday and running through Sunday. On each of the four days the four judges - two from Ireland and two from Thailand - will cast their practised eye over different breeds and each day they will rotate through the competitors, with a Best Exhibit In Show announced each day for four days.

"It's like having four shows in four days," explained show president Brian Eichmann, who also breeds stumpy tailed cattle dogs with his wife Fran.
