The Allora Show concluded with resounding success, as record entries and overwhelming community support marked the two-day event.

Record numbers of entries were reported in various categories including horses, cattle, goats, photography, and school artwork, reflecting the community’s enthusiastic participation.

The Allora Show Society vice-president, Carol Lyall said the event was excellent, fabulous, magnificent and spectacular.

“Everyone loved it, all the feedback we have been getting is overwhelmingly positive,” Carol said.

As she is heavily involved in the equine side of the show, Carol’s favourite part is to witness her months-long hard work come to fruition, but in a close second is working with the volunteers.

“Working closely with our dedicated volunteers was the highlight. Their commitment and support make the Allora Show a community-driven success,” she said.

“Our show simply wouldn’t be possible without our incredible volunteers. They are the backbone of the event, dedicating their time and effort to ensure everything runs smoothly. Their passion and dedication are truly commendable.”

The new attractions and events received enthusiastic praise, with the Crack Up Sisters and wildlife exhibits drawing crowds and generating excitement.

This has cemented the idea to the Allora Show Committee that next year needs to be even more family-friendly and there are already talks of prioritising affordability and accessibility so families can enjoy the event.

Carol stressed that the success of the Show must be attributed to the collective efforts of volunteers, sponsors, the supportive community, and the dedicated committee.

“We will continue to do our best to bring the best to the community,” Carol said.
