Plenty to see, do at Bedgerabong Show

Incredible chainsaw sculptor Rob Bast is coming to this district for the first time this Saturday, to feature at Bedgerabong Show.

The Australian sculptor has travelled nationally and internationally, carving incredibly detailed works out of wood at events.

He'll be producing three works at Bedgerabong Show, with the public urged to watch him in action. One of the local works will go up for auction at 6pm, with updates on Facebook for those who'd like to follow online.

And there's plenty more to take in this Saturday.

Showjumping is set to start at 8.30am and the other horse ring events get under way from 9am.

Cattle, sheep and pig competitions are also open, with full details for entrants in the schedule, and there should be plenty of activity around the livestock pavilions for visitors.

Forbes and District Historic Tractors return and will put on a tractor pull display, while inside the pavilion the best of the district's produce and creativity will be on display.

The farmyard nursery will be open to delight the younger show-goers, and cowboy hopefuls can test their skills on the mechanical bull from 1.30pm.

Young people interested in putting their hand up as Most Appropriately Dressed are asked to nominate at the secretary's office before 1pm on Show Day, with judging to take place at 1.30pm.

The popular dog high jump returns at 1pm, with dogs to be nominated at the secretary's office by 12.30pm. There are prizes for small, medium and large dogs.

The night continues with a bang, with this year's 7pm fireworks display promising to be bigger and better than ever in the show's history.
