Despite a slow start on Friday, patrons picked up on Saturday keen to experience the trademark competitions, stalls and rides.
Impressed show managing secretary Mike Farrow said early signs indicated that numbers were up on previous years.
Among the highlights was the shearing competition, which drew hundreds of spectators.
“We had shearers from all over Australia, representatives from New Zealand,” Mr Farrow said.
Dozens of rides, musical acts and roving entertainers were also among the thrills for showgoers.
“We’ve been very happy with Saturday, but it was definitely an improvement on the past few years,” he said. “The fireworks were fantastic.”
Long-serving show volunteer and Rotarian Ron Rauert described the sideshows among the standout features.
“There were more sideshows than ever. Sideshow alley was very popular,” Mr Rauert said.
“They had a great time and it’s a great event for children.
“The biggest event was the sheep shearing. The pavilion was packed out and there wasn't a seat to be had.”
With years under his belt as one of many Rotarians who donate their time to take tickets, Mr Rauert said the event was made a success courtesy of the weather.
