There’s free entry for all to the 2023 Eurobodalla Agricultural Show at the Moruya Showground on Saturday 21 January.
Eurobodalla Council’s community recovery officer Linda Wilton said the complimentary entry was possible thanks to bushfire recovery funding from the National Emergency Management Agency and the NSW Government, which also funded a Community Preparedness Expo to be run in conjunction with the show.
“This is great news for our community and should encourage people to get out and enjoy our wonderful annual show, which has always been a crowd favourite and now back up and running after a few difficult years,” Ms Wilton said.
“This funding means anyone and everyone can come along for free on Saturday, from 9am to 8pm, and enjoy all the show activities: from the livestock judging to sideshow alley, from the motorcycle gymkhana to dog high jump.”
Ms Wilton will be coordinating the Community Preparedness Expo during the show from 9am to 4pm and located just outside the basketball stadium.
“This is an opportunity for the community to get up-to-date with personal and community preparedness around emergencies and natural disasters,” she said.
“We’ll have a range of services and providers on site with information, demonstrations and activities. For example, the new fire-danger rating system, bushfire survival plans, flood awareness and how to get involved in community-led resilience. There’ll also be fun, down-to-earth or light-hearted activities for kids and kids at heart, like drama games, community art installations, smokehouse demonstrations and virtual reality headsets.”
Free entry is for Saturday only – normal gate fees will apply on Sunday 22 January 2023.
