Murgon residents gathered on Saturday night for the announcement of the 2019 Miss Showgirl … and to dance the night away.
Murgon Show Society’s Country Cabaret attracted more than 100 people to Murgon Town Hall for the big night.
They enjoyed a meal and live music, provided by Tony Wagner, plus the opportunity to twirl and swirl on the dancefloor.
There were fun competitions and several raffles were run. The most unusual prize was “Dash”, a corrugated iron farm dog crafted by Crinkle Creek Garden & Home Art at Wondai.
The corrugated iron sheets that Carina Fisher used to make Dash came from the old DAiry SHed at Murgon Showground which was demolished recently.
Judges Amy Wicks, Bob Riek and Holly Keliher spent the afternoon interviewing the candidates for Miss Showgirl, Rural Ambassador and Miss Junior Showgirl at Murgon’s Royal Hotel.
The highlight of the night was when the three winners were announced and sashed: 2019 Miss Showgirl is Teagan Hall, from Murgon; Miss Junior Showgirl is Ivia-May Riddell, Murgon; and Rural Ambassador is Locksley Bishop, Cloyna.
The Murgon Show will be held on March 15-16.
