RECENT wet weather has not dampened plans for this weekend’s 152nd Wangaratta Show, with the much anticipated annual event still scheduled to go on as normal.
While the wettest spring in 60 years has caused the cancellation of the show jumping, it has affected little else, according to Wangaratta Agricultural Society president Bernie Evans, who added that setup has been happening since early this week.
Mr Evans told the Wangaratta Chronicle yesterday that the softer ground has necessitated some reorganising of rides and sideshow alley attractions, but most events are proceeding as normal and warmer and drier weather is forecast for the remainder of the week.
And he urged the public to head out and enjoy the show this Friday and Saturday.
“We hope the Wangaratta community get behind us and support us,” he said.
“The forecast looks good for the show.
“People can attend with confidence.”
