For well over a century, the Pine Rivers Show has delighted patrons with fairground fun and the best of what the region has to offer.
The largest and longest show in the Moreton Bay Region is back in 2021, complete with a firework extravaganza set for both evenings of the three-day event.
Show coordinator Lizzie Cathcart said she expected both evenings of fireworks displays to be popular, but that families with young children might appreciate the choice of a 7:30pm time slot allocated for the Friday.
“The fireworks will be the icing on the cake for the event,” she said.
According to Lizzie, there’d be some new attractions but still plenty of those things people have always known and loved about the Pine Rivers Show.
“ We’ve added a medieval combat display and some pirate and puppet shows as well, but never fear — we’ve still got woodchopping, sheep dog trials, laser tag and our animal petting zoo,” she said.
She said the show was always a great opportunity to highlight everything the Moreton Bay area was proud of. “It’s when the community comes together and shows their support.”
Established in 1891 by The Pine Rivers A.H & I Association, the Pine Rivers Show is run by the help of over 200 volunteers.
“We are a not-for-profit organisation, run by volunteers, and would welcome more volunteers to come and join our wonderful association,” Lizzie said.
In keeping with the community spirit, this year's show will retain arts and crafts pavillions, agricultural exhibits, food and wine demonstrations, and a range of competitions.
Naturally, there’s side-show alley, with all the thrill of the funfair rides, skill tester games, food trucks and, of course, the show bags (with seven individual show bag vans).
“Make sure to grab a dagwood dog and a Bertie Beetle show bag while you’re here,” Lizzie said.
