The Warragul Show provided a variety of attractions on Friday night and Saturday with something to please everyone. Jamie Cutchie, Ruth Tucker and Gill Tucker all of Ellinbank made the exhibition section one of their first stops and loved the size and colour of the dahlias.

The Show proved to be a showcase of home grown talent on the weekend with local entries taking out all the major championship titles.

From the cattle rings, to horse rings and the exhibition section, it was an array of champion ribbons being presented to entries from across West Gippsland when the show was held on Friday night and Saturday.

Local police praised the behaviour of young show patrons at the show eve carnival on Friday night, while lots of families turned out for traditional show activities on Saturday.

Exhibitor numbers were well down in the cattle rings which was disappointing for organisers, but judges continued to praise breeders for supporting their local show.

The horse rings provided a great spectacle for horse enthusiasts on the main arena on Saturday where there were strong entries in all classes.

Friday night's program was dominated by the carnival atmosphere.  Families and teenagers enjoyed the entertainment on offer and organisers were pleased to report a trouble free show.

Police said they were really pleased with the work put in by organisers in working with police to ensure a safe environment for young people and families.
