“The Biggest Little Show in the West” is celebrating 100 shows.
The Rydal & District A, H & P Society would like to invite everyone to the 100th annual Rydal show to be held on Saturday 4th February.
There will be lots to see, including art and photography, schoolwork, needlework, and handicrafts, cooking, horticulture, fruit and vegetables and wool. Members of Lithgow Living History and Live Reptile Displays will be there, as well as some stalls selling all sorts of goodies and George with a couple of rides for the kids.
We will be having an antique tractor display, ex-military vehicle display as well as a shearing exhibition.
We have invited our previous showgirls dating back to 1965 when we first entered the Land Sydney Royal Showgirl competition.
Also on show will be dogs of all kinds, cattle, sheep, and horses which will range in size from miniatures to heavy horses. For our under 12 riders that can’t compete in the main ring we will have the Topsy Turvey ring for them to try their luck and hone their skills.
The Yard Dogs and woodchoppers will also be on display and always prove to be very popular to watch.
There will be a Guess the Weight of the Bull competition as well as the lamb auction which will begin at 1:30pm.
There will be lots of food available. The dining room will be open with our usual sit down hot meals and delicious homemade cakes and slices available.
The kiosk will be open with an all-day BBQ and the bar will be open.
We will be finishing off our 100th show with some music by the very talented Casey McFarlane.
