IF YOU are looking for a great place to spend a few fun filled hours with the family look no further than the Echuca-Moama show this weekend.

Packed full of great things to do for people of all ages, the agricultural show has something for everyone.

Free family entertainment will run throughout the weekend, including an animal nursery, face painting, horse and carriage rides, plaster painting and the cartoon lady.

Stalls will operate Saturday and Sunday and the Australian champion chainsaw carver will be in attendance.

The young — and the young at heart — will enjoy a walk down sideshow alley or taking in a few of the many rides. If you enjoy things at more of a sedate pace a walk through the Holmfield Pavilion might be more to your liking.

Jam packed with local craft, hobbies, cooking, creativity — and jams — the Pavilion is a great place to take a wander and enjoy the talents on display by the local community.

Local school children also love the opportunity to show their families their colourful schoolwork that will be on display.

Running through the weekend, the Holstein and Murray Grey feature show is a great place to check out some of the region’s majestic bovines, while the horse show will offer plenty of action in the ring.

Utes in all their glory will be on show on Saturday while Sunday will see the Show ‘n’ Shine in action.

For those with a competitive streak there is an opportunity to enter the paper plane competition or if eating is more your thing, why not have a go at shovelling as many doughnuts as you can and be crowned champion doughnut eater of the show.

The ever popular fireworks will be held Saturday night which is a sight not to be missed — the explosions of colour that light up the night sky always make for a dazzling display.

Gates open at 9am on Saturday and Sunday. Entry is $10 for adults, $5 for children under 16 years and it is free for children under 5.
