The 113th Byaduk and Community Spring Show will be held on Saturday 2nd November. The new initiatives introduced last year were a great success with the fabulous display of Community Scarecrows, for prize money of $100 awarded to the winners nominated educational facility, along with the champion chocolate cake with $300 of prize money to be shared between iced and uniced chocolate cakes and the fabulous i-garden display.
The show went to a new level last year and we are excited to see what entries we receive this year!
We still have the very popular categories in Cut Flowers, Roses, Floral Art and Homecrafts, along with Photography. The gardens have left winter behind and now launching into spring. There will be a magnificent range of flowers to fill the Byaduk Hall. It is always so spectacular to walk in the front door and see the hall brimming with flowers and craft from top to bottom.
Containers of pink flowers, floret of iris, collections of pansies, 3 Flowering Trees, and the category of My Best Flower always shows a huge array of stunning flowers. The rose section is always beautiful with the amazing collection of flowers from our local district gardens. We encourage everyone to be a part of the show. It’s amazing to see so many contribute entries to the show, and that’s what makes our show! A few entries from everybody! Put them all together and you have a hall brimming with colour and scent! The age groups are; open. Junior being 14 years and under for flora and photos, and 15 years and under for cakes. Pre primary have a number of sections also with a bunch of pretty flowers, one decorated egg, one decorated cup cake and a saucer of sprouted seeds to name a few.
The photos are always a highlight with favorite animal, best selfie,funniest photo bomb and funniest farm mishap and more!
There is also a non competitive section with the igarden digital display. Images of local gardens form across all seasons are being supplied to incorporate into a digital display to be run on the day.
We are thrilled to have Jo Levy from ” For The Love Of Flora’ making a flora display in the hall for our show. The archway entrance she provided for our show 2 years ago was a show stopper! Jo is so talented with her arrangements we can’t wait to see what she has for this year.
The Hamilton and District Vintage and Classic Drivers Club are being featured at the Show which promises to be a fabulous display. The club was formed in 1970. It is open to any person interested in the restoration, preservation and operation of Historic Motor Vehicles built at least 25 years ago. It is not necessary to own such a vehicle to be a member. The club has in excess of 150 members. The club holds monthly general meetings at its club rooms at the Hamilton Pastoral Museum. Outings are organised at least twice a month. These include visits to places of historic, scenic and general interest. From time to time the club supports local community groups by participating in static displays and street parades.
Members are very happy to be supporting the Byaduk Spring Show in 2019. An interesting variety of vehicles is anticipated with examples representing various decades from the 1920’s onwards. In November 2020 the club will celebrate its Golden Anniversary. Plans being formulated for an appropriate celebration to mark this milestone. We are thrilled to have a number of these beautifully kept cars on display opposite the Byaduk Hall as part of our day.
