Prices at the gate same as last year after Marcia's cost
FAMILIES will be the big winners at The Pines Yeppoon 2015 annual Yeppoon Show which will be held on Saturday and Sunday this weekend.
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.
"We also have Bob Pacey and guitarist Ian Plant performing in the bar throughout both days," she said.
"All sections of the show have classes for students with similar prize money to that of the adults. This is to encourage our young people to showcase their talents and be part of their own local show."
The Showmen's Guild are also playing their part by providing two for one rides on both days of the show from 10am to 12 noon for children aged 6 years to 14 years.
ENTRY: $10 for adults, $5 for pensioners and school students and under school age free.
Membership stays at $10 which covers entry to the show for the two days
