 - Mighty Mossman Show continues to grow

THE fast approaching Mossman Show, which will be held on July 22 and 23, has received a significant boost with the Queensland Government announcing a $11,879 cash injection.

The popular local fair has benefited from an increase of $400,000 to be shared between Far North shows over three years as part of the state’s Show Societies Grants Program.

“The local show is more than just a magical occasion creating wonderful memories, it’s a truly important social and economic event on the calendar for towns, cities and regions right across the state,” Minister for Local Government Stirling Hinchliffe said.

"The Show Societies and associations that run the shows do a fantastic job, usually with limited resources.

“When I was growing up, going to the show was one of the highlights of the year and even now, when I hear the screams from the rides and catch the familiar scents of dagwood dogs, fairy floss and livestock in the air, it’s still a thrill.”

The 67th Mossman Show will be held on Sunday July 22 and Monday July 23 this year. All the usual favourites will be there along with a live band and fireworks across the two days.
