AFTER several months of planning, Wanneroos once-a-year event, the Wanneroo Agricultural Show, came to a successful conclusion last Saturday, with more people passing through the turnstiles than in recent years.
On display were a variety of novelty attractions, a 500-strong children’s choir, quality agricultural and arts and crafts exhibitions in the Margaret Cockman pavilion, new-look equestrian events, and many talented performers on stage and on the arena as well the return of the big rides in Sideshow Alley. It was a great weekend of fun and entertainment that finished with a bang with the award-winning fireworks display.
The popular Wanneroo Junior and Wanneroo Senior Show Idol competition received a record number of entries with Te Ya Jermai winning the senior idol and Ashton Lavender the junior idol.
The show is organised and made possible by the Wanneroo Agricultural Society, a not -for-profit community organisation run by committee of volunteers and their helpers.
The first Wanneroo Agricultural Show was held in April 1909.
