Family day at Bathurst Show

CANDICE BRADFIELD

THIS year the Bathurst Show is changing things up to bring more entertainment into the main arena that the whole family can enjoy.

The Bathurst Show will run from April 5 to 7, and the horse section will now be starting a day earlier than usual on April 2, freeing up the main arena on Sunday for a variety of shows.

These will include a parachuting display, the army doing a border crossing demonstration, a vintage car show and the very popular police dog display. They will also have horse exhibitions on the day.

Armand the Singing Cowboy will be wowing the audience on Saturday afternoon not only with his voice but his horse’s dressage abilities. Armand sings mostly country songs while his horse performs tricks and dance moves.

As there will now be nine rides for the kids to enjoy, the fun fair will be moving next to the army stand. The flea market will also be moving with stalls leading down towards the fair and the army stand.

Gr8Art(correct) Concepts, a stallholder new to the Bathurst Show, will be running a colouring-in competition for children under the age of 15.

Easy Art is a modern version of “paint by numbers” which makes painting easy for children and professionals. A faded image is printed onto a canvas which is then block mounted, ready for painting.

Entry is free and there are three age categories. The prizes will be A2 canvas prints of the winner’s chosen image.

Gate prices for the show will be announced at a later date.
