The Bull Ride is always a popular event at the annual Blackbutt Show

April 25, 2012

The 78th annual Blackbutt Show will be held this Saturday at the showgrounds in Hart Street.

There’ll be all the usual fun of the fair, including a free animal nursery, ute muster, post ripping and woodchopping, but this year there’ll also be an all-new sideshow alley and cooking demonstrations by South Burnett chef Jason Ford.

Stud cattle, horses, poultry, miniature goats and alpacas will add a rural flavour.

The popular Bull and Bronco Rodeo will start at 5:30pm. And if you’re feeling a bit sheepish about watching the bulls, this year there’ll also be a woolly jumbuck ride.

Country singer Arthur Nettelfield will be providing the musical entertainment from 8:00pm to midnight.

Entry is $12 for adults, and $10 for children over 10 and pensioners (with card). Children under 12 are free.
