WITH the annual Yeppoon Show and the Yeah Nice Block Party on this weekend, there should plenty of activity for residents to participate in.

Due to Cyclone Marcia affecting the economy of many families in the area, the society is keeping the gate entry fees the same as last year - $10 for adults, $5 for pensioners and school students and under school age free.

Secretary Desley Rial said this week that once patrons were through the gate, all ground entertainment provided by the society including the Eljay Freestyle Show, The Crackup Sisters, Gala Night Show, Fireworks, the ever popular Petting Zoo, fashion parades, Grand Parade and Ring events would be completely free to patrons.
