SHOW-goers will be able to eat hot chips and fairy floss under an upgraded food court at the 68th Annual Mighty Mossman Show this weekend.

Douglas Shire Council provided $20,000 sponsorship and $1,200 in-kind assistance for the Mossman and District Show Society to get the showgrounds ready for the 2019 event.

This included completing a handful of works such as the shelter extension, a new pedestrian crossing at the show grounds car park and cleaning footpaths leading to the showgrounds.

 

 

Douglas Shire Mayor Julia Leu said Council loved supporting the Mossman Show.

“The Mossman Show is a quintessential community event,” she said.

“It is a celebration of our community, agricultural industries and a great opportunity to come together for two days of fun.”

Council officers will be staffing a stall with puppies and water education games at the WS Johnston Pavilion over the two days.

The weekend will feature signature events such as the wood chopping, dog jumping, fat cattle competition, equestrian and a fireworks display.

 

 

“The Mossman Show always draws a strong crowd so it is important we have a notable presence and interact with our residents,” Mayor Leu.

“I encourage everyone to come down for a chat and you never know, you may learn a thing or two about what your Council does.”

Council would also like to remind residents that the Mossman Administration Building will be closed for the show public holiday on Monday, July 22

Opening hours at the Waste Transfer Facility will remain unchanged.

Council encourages everyone to enjoy the festivities at the Mossman Show!
