With only two more agricultural shows on the region’s calendar, another season of farming machinery, shearing competitions, animal displays and home-made crafts is drawing to a close.
Following on from Nhill, Dimboola and Jeparit shows, Stawell and Ararat show committees hosted their annual shows at the weekend.
Ararat Show president Gwenda Allgood said the event had struggled in past years with a lack of committee members and volunteers.
This year however, she said things were looking up.

Ms Allgood said the committee had plans to revitalise the event to become bigger and better each year to continue the show’s near 160-year history. “We are really surprised by the way it has picked up over the past few years, and we really would like to thank everyone for coming,” she said.
“You can work your tail off trying to get things going, but unless people are coming in, it just falls on its feet.
“And in a community like ours, you can’t afford to lose anything.
“We’ll certainly continue with what we’re doing.
“I think there is a real move out there in the community to keep it going.”
Edenhope Annual Show on November 16 and Beaufort Annual Show on November 17 will round off show season until next year.
