The round of local agricultural shows for 2015 kicks off on February 21 with the 66th annual Cooyar Show.

Organisers say they have a few new events planned for this year’s show, including a mini horse derby, mutton busting, poddy rides and demolition derby cars.

All the regular popular attractions will also be taking place, including chainsaw racing, a stud cattle competition, equestrian events, ute muster and pavilion displays.

A licensed bar will be running all day.

The grand parade and official opening will be held from about 12:15pm.

Cost to enter the show is $20 for adults and $5 for high school students. Children under 12 are free.

In sideshow alley, a special “budget package” of five rides for $5 will be available.

The evening will be capped off by the traditional bull ride and fireworks display.

Footnote: The annual Cooyar Show Ball will be held this Saturday (February 7) at the Cooyar Hall.
