Bream Creek back on show

THE Bream Creek Showgrounds were packed with revellers in March as the show finally returned to entertain crowds for the 119th year after a two-year break.

It was a sweet moment for Bream Creek Show Society president Andrew Bennett, who after three years in the position, could finally welcome patrons into the showgrounds.

“In my previous two shows that I’ve been president, my first show, in 2020, was cancelled a week before, because of Covid, and last year we didn’t run at all.”

Limitations were placed on the capacity of the event, though Mr Bennett did point out that there must have been 4999 people in the showgrounds at any time.

“Up until this year we’ve never counted numbers, but we’ve usually worked on having about 5000 here, so to get that many on our return is amazing.”

Some highlights of the day included the spectacle of the tree felling competitions, the Bream Creek Iron Women race, the Bream Creek Show team whipping the kids in to a frenzy with the lolly toss, and Shane Newitt’s record-breaking pumpkin, setting a show-record of 736kg
