Rochester Show Committee president Heather Watson is hoping this weekend’s event will be a crowd pleaser.
Mrs Watson said a family picnic event on the Saturday was a new event which aimed to attract bigger crowds.
The family picnic will be staged on the Moon Oval, and families are asked to bring picnic rugs and chairs.
Stalls will sell picnic food and drink while children can enjoy activities such as free face painting, spray-on tattoos, roving characters, a photo booth, fairy floss, balloon artist and statue artist.
Friday night entertainment will include SES and fire brigade displays, miniature horse displays, Segway bikes, a snake pit, dog jumping competition, country music artists, an animal nursery, a temporary tattoo station, dodgem cars and a home-crafts pavilion display.
Miss and Mr Teenager judging will take place at 8pm.
Mrs Watson said the grounds at the Rochester Recreation Reserve were almost ready for the show.
‘‘We’re feeling good about it and hope the public feels good about it. We’re ready and raring to go,’’ she said.
For show schedules, visit the show office at the community house or at Nevins, Ray White, the Patchwork Shop, Baker’s Newsagency, Parson’s and Mitre 10.
