Double-vax rule as Bream Creek Show returns

AFTER being postponed twice in the past two years, the 199th Bream Creek Show will finally be back this year, coming to us on March 19.

“The Bream Creek Show Society have been working hard to adjust to ever-changing rules and restrictive measures surrounding local events, and to comply with Covid-safe mandates in order to present a wonderful return event,” the show committee said.

Returning favourites in the animal nursery, billy tea and damper, snake viewings, spinners and weavers, oyster shucking, make-believe children’s entertainment and ‘guess the weight of the steer’ will all be back on display at the showgrounds, while the Hall of Industry will be on display for the whole day.

The main arena will also host sand sculpting, lawn mower racing and the pie-eating competition.

“It’s certainly been a huge challenge for us,” said Andrew Bennett, President of the Bream Creek Show committee.
“But we don’t want to be among those small events that have to cancel again, and we are willing to take a financial hit so that we can bring our show back.”

“We will be carefully monitoring crowd numbers, enforcing masks and hand hygiene.
“Our committee, volunteers and stall-holders are double vaxxed and COVID-safe compliant.”

Competition entries are open now including the Hall of Industry, the scarecrow competition, Rural Kids On Show and the giant pumpkins and pasture competitions. Masks are mandatory for the event, and all attending patrons must have received their second vaccination.
