It is almost time for the Deni Show and there are a couple of things to think about
First up is admission prices

Children between 5 and 16 years old can get in for $2 each day.
Children who are under 5 years old are free.
The Family package is $30 for both days and is great for 2 adults & 2 children.
The Fireworks Special which is so you can get in to primarily watch the fireworks up close begins from 6pm on the Saturday is $5, fireworks go off at 9pm.
Laser Tag starts from 11am on Saturday, this will no doubt be a popular attraction.
South West Music will be having bands playing for the people at 5pm on Friday and Saturday.
Deni Drums & Dust will be hosting games from 1pm on Saturday and there are plenty of age groups 7yrs & under, 8 to 10 years old, 11 to 13 years old, 14 to 17 years old and
18 years & over.
Dogs will be in action from 2pm on Saturday, entry is a gold coin donation and entries can be made on the day, call into the Deniliquin Veterinary Clinic or their Facebook page.
There are three events for Dogs to enter from 2pm there will be ‘Best Dressed Dog’ followed by ‘Flat Chat Dog Race’ over 25m’ at 2:30pm and last is the ‘Dog Jump’ competition at 3:30pm, rules can be found here
There will be Poultry (that is living Poultry) on show as well as Dairy Cattle and Beef Cattle.
Horses will be going through their paces on the weekend, there are dozens of competitions, details on entry and cost of stables as well as rules can be found here.
Registration for the games hosted by Deni Drums & Dust takes place on the day at the Arena (near the entry to Willoughby’s Beach).
At 5pm on Saturday there will be a European Carp Throwing Competition, some may take pleasure in seeing a pest of the waterways being tossed around.
Schools have been making Clowns and have also been growing giant Pumpkins, which school will make and grow the best? stay tuned.
Fireworks will be going off at 9pm on Saturday March 3, as you can imagine pets will be scared by the sound of the fireworks going off so please keep your pets secure indoors and with company and if possible do not have them on a leash as there have been reports over the years of animals accidentally hanging themselves in their haste to get away.
There is plenty more that will be happening from Friday and that includes Shearing, Sheep & Wool, Rides, Tiny Tots, Ambassadors and more.
