THE showgrounds in Jandowae have benefited from some much-needed rain this week and will be lush and green for the 69th Jandowae and District Annual Show on March 25.

Show society president Lillian Krog, who has been involved with the show for more than 30 years, said if it continued to rain the show could run into some trouble but for now the showgrounds were in peak condition.

"We've had good rain, which means everything will be nice and green. The grounds are looking beautiful, they are really lovely. If it keeps raining we'll be in trouble but if it doesn't keep raining we're in for a really good show,” she said.

Expect to see some roosters out and about with this year's event themed the Year of the Rooster, which also hails the return of poultry to the show.

"This year is the Year of the Rooster and we're focusing on that. We are having a non-competitive poultry section. It dropped off for a lot of years but it's becoming popular again,” Mrs Krog said.

Program favourites such as horses, cattle, carnival rides and the pavilion are set to return with some new and exciting events being added to this year's show mix.

Organisers are calling on young blood to step up and take on the Young Farmer's Challenge, a competitive obstacle course which tests farming skills while the little show-goers can enjoy the Bubble Muffin Kids Cooking Club.

Mrs Krog said while it was a big job to put the show together it was worth it because it was for the benefit of the community.

She said the show brought people from all areas to Jandowae.

"We've got a really good day planned. There are plenty of activities for everyone,” she said.

"The horse stud and the cattle and the barrel racing bring a lot of people to the show.”
