Angaston Show heats up

Angaston Show organisers are hoping for a cooler weekend next year, after the heat lowered attendance numbers for the second consecutive year.

While many attended the opening at Angas Recreation Park on Saturday, the hot weather kept numbers down on Sunday.

Despite the conditions, many stallholders were pleased, with Angaston and District Lions Club reporting their most successful show in 13 years.

With about 3,000 second-hand books to sell, the Lions Club made four times more profit than last year.

Stallholders from Good Shepherd Lutheran School, Angaston, also had a successful Saturday, having to replenish both chicken and tomato for their wraps to cater for the demand.

Among the most popular events during the weekend were stargazing, the tractor pull, Wobbles the Clown and the belly dancing and Zumba under the marquee.

Organisers also brought back old time fun, with the return of the popular donut-eating contest.
