Thousands of families flock to Camden Show

There were smiles galore in Camden last Friday and Saturday for the annual Camden Show. 

The weather put on its own show with rain and dark clouds lingering on Friday followed by early morning fog and 30-degree heat on Saturday.

Camden Show secretary Jo Martin said this year's show was set to be another fantastic event full of family fun with loads to see and do.

The show took a step into the future with electronic tickets available this year.

Some of the new events on offer this year included ranch sorting which is a western-style equestrian sport requiring competitors to separate cattle into different pens.

Dog Flyball races were held on both days this year and visitors enjoyed a range of new acts, musicians, performers and groups on the entertainment stage.

Ms Martin said the show was a popular event with more than 41,000 people attending year after year.

"It is the largest community event in Macarthur providing a diverse range of things to see and do for all ages," she said.
