The community of Bulahdelah has been gearing up for their annual show to be held over two full days from this Friday, November 16-17.
Voted one of the top 10 shows in NSW this little gem has been going non-stop since the Bulahdelah Show Society re-started the annual show in 1983.
The 2018 program is as packed as ever promising fun for all the family.
The show kicks off on Friday with the campdrafts from 6am.
Gates open at 5.30am both days and the show wraps up with fireworks at 9pm on Saturday night.
“ Walshie ” from Great Lakes FM Radio will be broadcasting live from the show on Saturday from 10am-2pm and may have some surprises up his sleeve.
The show will be officially opened at 2pm on Saturday by Nikki Gibbs, the Land Sydney Royal Easter Show winner for 2018.
The winner of the Bulahdelah Show Girl competition will also be announced.
Nikki is being joined by member for Myall Lakes Stephen Bromhead and his wife Sue to judge this year.
The competition is said to be close between the three show girl entrants Lauren Shultz, Ellie Gooch and Keahne Hurtado.

The show features many of the favourites including side show alley, horse events and dressage, working dog trials as well as a rodeo, wood chop and pavilion exhibits.
New this year is the Oakvale Farm Animal Nursery.
This is a real chance for the kids to get up close and feed the animals such as chickens, ducks, rabbits, guinea pigs, goats and lambs.
The team at Oakvale pride themselves on providing a educational hands-on experience for children and adults alike.
Also for the children is the My Pet Dinosaur interactive display.
You might get to meet a baby T-Rex who measures four metres long, 2.5 metres tall and whose realistic movements and sounds will have you wondering if dinosaurs really are extinct.
Returning this year is a rare chook display thanks to AvGen Poultry of Mudgee.
The result of possibly the largest rare breed preservation project of its kind in the world these pure bred chickens are on tour and ready to fluff their feathers for Bulahdelah.
For the finest in local craft, cattle and country hospitality head to the Bulahdelah Showground on Friday or Saturday, November 16-17.
