PERFECT weather saw an almost endless stream of young families and the Wanneroo Show faithful pour into the Showground at the weekend.

Entertainment included daredevil motorcycle displays, equestrian show jumping, side show alley at its best and magnificent fireworks displays of Friday and Saturday night.

There were also vegetables and arts and crafts exhibits in Margaret Cockman Pavilion.
