Motto: Have a plan and be prepared.
Event: -

For the 121st consecutive year, the Korumburra and District Agricultural & Pastoral Society are hosting their annual Show on the weekend of 13th and 14th February 2016.

Korumburra, known as the *'Heritage Centre of South Gippsland', is famous for the historical village and living museum, Coal Creek and remains relatively untouched by modern day influences, preserving the architecture and lifestyle experienced between the *1870's to 1920's.

In similar fashion, the annual Korumburra Show is a good, old-fashioned throwback to the show established over one hundred years ago. Livestock, pets, poultry, garden produce, baking, apple pies, preserves, home brew, flowers and plants, floral art, needlework, art, photography, handicrafts and equestrian events will all be on display.

Don't be a mere observer! Categories are open to everyone, with junior sections in most categories for young enthusiasts under the age of 16 years.

The Miss Showgirl Quest, held in conjunction with the Lions Club of Korumburra, is an opportunity to win sashes and trophies in the categories of Little Miss Korumburra Showgirl (aged 2-6 years), Korumburra Master Tot Boy (aged 2-4 years), and Miss Korumburra Showgirl for one young lady aged 7-12 years.

In addition to the judged events, enjoy the newest addition to the Korumburra Show, the South Gippsland Buskers Festival. Performers will take to the stage on Saturday evening, battling it out prior to the FIREWORKS display starting at 9.15pm.

Live entertainment includes line dancers with highland piper, school bands, Stax with his didgeridoo and Drunken Ninja Band in addition to Jackie Van Velzen.

Special events for the kids include Dog Flyball, face painting, and be amazed by Lachlan Wilde the magician. Janie from Barn Buddies will host the animal nursery with friends from the Maremma Sheepdog Rescue Program, while Black Snake Productions will have some more slippery friends on hand to touch and hold.

Grown-ups will enjoy the wine, cheese and olive oil tasting, vintage car display, Beaut Utes, Working Horse and Tractor Rally and everyone will enjoy the various sideshows.

The Korumburra Show is being held on the weekend of Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th February 2016, at the Korumburra Showgrounds, South Gippsland Hwy, Korumburra.

Exhibitors are welcome.

Admission prices for a Family (2 adults, 2 children) $25, Adults $10, Children (10-14 years) $5, Children under 10 free, Pensioner/Senior/Concession $8.

It's such a long time since I've been to a real country show. Perhaps next weekend is a good time to rectify that. I commute from Melbourne to Wonthaggi for work and drive past the Korrumburra show sign every day.
