Facebook shows off town love

IN THE week leading up to the Chinchilla Show, a simple challenge was issued to the public through the Show Society’s Facebook page.

“Comment on this post in 25 words or less what it is you like about the show (or if you have never been before then tell us what you are looking forward to).”

The answers came thick and fast, and of such a high quality the Miss Chinchilla Showgirl and manager of the Facebook page had to print off dozens of the best for president Greg Stanke to peruse and try to decide a winner from.

“I love seeing the smiles on all the kids’ sticky faces after they’ve enjoyed a Dagwood dog and some fairy floss,” Bec Wilson said.

“My favourite thing about the show is seeing the look on my little boy’s face when we first walk down sideshow alley,” Aimee Jones said.

Jodie Miller’s entry read “I love the atmosphere just everything really and the look on my daughter’s face when she finds her art work on the wall”.

Caitlin Twidale got creative with her submission: “Driving past showgrounds morning and night/Kids faces light up to see the sight!/Lights, displays showcase local things/Joy and excitement the show brings”.

“We love to see the entries in the pavilion, especially the chooks and animals, and it’s a great day to have a chat,” Vicki Abraham shared.

Tracey Liljegren wrote “Seeing the four-year-old’s excitement to ride bumper cars with Daddy! The six-year-old is pretty happy to have a target this year!”

But there could only be one winner of the six tickets to the show, who was Robyn Haig with “I love that the show gives the opportunity for our children to see and appreciate how creative, industrious and generous their community is”.
