Last Saturday, the Bridgetown Agricultural Society hosted its 133rd annual Agricultural Show at the Bridgetown Showgrounds. The day included musical performances, interactive activities, animal shows and farm animal experiences, a sideshow alley filled with rides, food stalls and show bags. In the arena, horse and dog agility shows, pony rides, car and truck displays, a virtual experience of the RAC Rescue Helicopter and pony rides filled the grassy area, while both Rowan and the Centenary Halls were filled with produce and art on display. Major show sponsor Talison Lithium had a marquee tent with a sandpit and interactive science displays as well. The Bridgetown Show president Roger Gutteridge said the show had become quite busy and was filled with activity throughout the day. “It’s got a real vibe to it this year and I think it’s really exciting and everywhere there’s some activity happening, so I’m really pleased with this year,” he said. “In the first few hours, it’s a bit quiet, but in the afternoon and evening it gets quite busy and when the lights go on at the sideshows at night, it’s busier.” He also said the community’s involvement made the show and the end result a spectacular experience. “It’s very hard to organise the show, it’s a lot to do with a small committee of volunteers and a lot of help, but it’s great when it comes together. “It’s a great community here, in the South West, and everybody pulls together and there a lot of newcomers that are here this year and they have all been made welcome.” The show ended at night with the show’s famous fireworks spectacular and music playing by local DJ Aaron Macknight.
