Anticipation is building as the 121st annual Silver City Show gets ready to open this evening.
With all the signs that everything will be set up and ready to go, gates open at the Memorial Oval from 5pm.
Silver City Show Committee President Bruce McIntosh said everything was "coming up good" and all the rides were back.
Old favourites like the Kamikaze, Sky Diver, ferris wheel, dodgem cars, cha-cha and Tilt-a-whirl will be available as well as "stuff for the kids" according to Mr McIntosh.
The show will also host arts and crafts, jumping castles, the fun factory, animal nursery and show bags on the oval.
Mr McIntosh said with everything looking good for the show, his only hope was that the weather would be nice.
"There is quite a variety (of rides) ... we are hoping for a good weekend," he said.
The fireworks display will take place on Friday and Saturday night at 9pm.
Gates close at 11pm tonight. Hours are 8am until 10pm tomorrow and 8am until 10pm on Saturday. The show rides will not be operating on Sunday but there will horse events underway.
