Mayoral Column

Next week, our whole community has the chance to showcase everything that’s great and wonderful about our local area at the annual Hawkesbury Show. The Hawkesbury Show will be held from Friday, 5 May to Sunday, 7 May 2017. Many locals proudly say it is easily the best show in all of NSW!

The show is fun for the whole family, so I hope you can come along and enjoy the entertainment - from stunning fireworks displays to exhilarating rides and thrills! I enjoy it every year and there’s always something for everyone. Special events will include woodchopping, art and crafts exhibits, racing pigs, the Isuzu D-Max precision driving team, horse events, flyball dog demonstrations, Kachan School of Tumbling demonstrations, unchained BMX performances and special daily surprises.

Hawkesbury City Council will have a big information marquee with lots of things to see and do as well as free plants and other giveaways. There’ll be free kids’ activities and a chance to get to know some Council staff and find out what they do in their jobs, including staff roles in the Hawkesbury Companion Animal Shelter, Cultural Services, Community Services, Bushcare, and the Visitors Information Centre.

The Hawkesbury Show will be held at Hawkesbury Showground, 40 Racecourse Road, Clarendon.

Opening hours: Friday, 5 May - 9am to 11pm; Saturday, 6 May - 9am to 11pm; Sunday, 7 May - 9am to 5pm. Special ticket prices for families and concession. For more information and event schedules visit www.hawkesburyshow.com.au
