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.

‘‘We’re feeling good about it and hope the public feels good about it. We’re ready and raring to go,’’ she said.
