Clunes fills with smiling faces and sunshine for town show

Sunshine and warm weather helped draw a crowd to the Clunes Show on Saturday. 

Clunes Show president Lachy Campbell said the events, ranging from traditional show competitions to those more whacky attractions, drew a sizable crowd. 

The pet show and dog jump were among crowd favourites, and the little more absurd gumboot throwing competition and ferret races had fair-goers laughing.  

Mr Campbell said roving performers, puppet shows and face painting were popular with children. 

The afternoon Grand Parade was a highlight for animal lovers, with the winners of each section of animal competition parading the show grounds. 

The Homecrafts Pavillion impressed many, with over 1600 entries. 

Clunes and District Agricultural Society assistant secretary Karen Rustman said there was a great community spirit at the show. 

“There were people of all ages from kids to grandmas and everyone in between… either having a go or watching others have a go.”
