Seymour shows off its style

18 Oct 2017 Seymour Telegraph, Seymour VIC (General News) Saturday, with its fine weather and a good crowd had a wonderful atmosphere with much for people to enjoy? On the back of hugely successful 2017 event, Great Seymour Show Off president Jason Ronald (pictured) said the Seymour Agricultural and Pastoral Society wanted to thank the many people from Seymour and beyond who attend the show on October 6-7. Mr Ronald said a great deal of time and effort goes into producing the annual show and it was gratifying to know people appreciated the effort by turning up and supporting the event. He said the Friday night included the band 5 Degrees with Flaxon and Jasper Kayehicks both former winners of the Battle of the Bands in Mitchell Shire. The carnival rides were the best ever presented at our show and the food vendors offered a wide range of delicacies, Mr Ronald said. For the second time fireworks concluded the nights activities and they were spectacular I was told they rivalled those at the Royal Melbourne Show, he said. Saturday, with its fine weather and a good crowd had a wonderful atmosphere with much for people to enjoy. That included the Australian native animal display, farmer Daryls animal nursery, Stewart Bryants whip cracking, the yard dog competition, Whip Industries motorbike display, the dog high jump (which went close to breaking the world record) and the emergency services display.
