Hundreds of people braved the heat at the annual Koorawatha Show last Sunday, which saw locals as well as visitors flock to the village.
Temperatures soared to 36 degrees during the afternoon, but ice cold slushies and ice cream helped keep visitors cool.
This year’s show ran from 9am to 9pm, with visitors soaking up the sun and enjoying an
array of events, including horse events, sheep, chickens, the junior show boy and show girl, historic vehicles and machinery, market stalls, jumping castles, and a pavilion full of
Novelty events such as the chain saw competition, whip cracking, and tug of war were also on show to entertain the crowds.
A magician could even be seen roaming around making cards disappear and re-appear, sending children into hysterics.
Member for Cootamundra Stephanie Cooke was also on hand to help present various awards on the day.
Of the many award winners on the day, lamb owner Ruth Bray, a Koorawatha local, was one of the local winners, taking out the grand championship for export lambs.
The show not only attracted hundreds to the show ground on Bumbaldry Street, but many visitors also checked out the rest of the village, with a full car park seen out the front of the village’s popular business, the Koorawatha Hotel.
Next year’s show will be held on Sunday March 3.
It completed a busy weekend of shows in the Hilltops region, with the Boorowa Show having taken place last Friday and Saturday.
