Spring sun welcomes bumper crowds at 124th Swan Hill Show

PLEASANT spring weather helped boost numbers at this year's 124th Swan Hill Show.

The annual tradition was staged in maximum temperatures of the high 20s on Friday and Saturday at the showgrounds.

The event showcased local agricultural and pastoral talent, from the hoof and cook competition, pavilion, showjumping to yard dogs.

The children were kept entertained with performances by The Mik Maks and extreme motorcycle and puppet shows.

Show favourites returned including thrilling rides and showbags, woodchopping, cattle and poultry, while the opening day ended with a dazzling fireworks display.
