Show crowds up on last year

THE 2011 Rockhampton Show has been declared a success, with an overall increase on last year’s attendance figures.

This year 28,185 people attended the show over the three days, compared to just under 28,000 last year, and almost 24,000 in 2009.

Attendance numbers were up for each day of the show.

Show committee chairman Cr Graeme Brady said it was good to see the people of the Rockhampton region and visitors supporting the show.

“It was a modest increase in attendance but an increase nonetheless, and we’re very pleased with that,” Cr Brady said.
