Great response to call for 2021 Forbes online Show

We should have been celebrating the Forbes Show this weekend, but since we couldn't the fantastic volunteers of the Forbes Show put something else together.

There's been a great response to the Forbes Show's online competitions, with good numbers of entries attracting good interest online.

The entries were loaded to the Forbes Show NSW Facebook page and followers were asked to cast their votes.

The decorated cupcakes, handicrafts and decorated vegetables proved some of our locals are using this time at home to put their talents to creative use.

We share some of the winning entries - courtesy Forbes PA and H Association - here.

It's been so successful the Forbes PA and H has now opened animal sections, ranging from the traditional stock sections to novelty.

They're calling for entries for everything from best cow and calf through to funniest photo of your pet. There's even a section to encourage you and your pets to get dressed up.

Be part of it, the sections are:
