While the cool nights during the weekend kept some of the crowds at bay, this year's Silver City Show was yesterday adjudged a success.
Show secretary John Ralph said that gate takings were down somewhat, but otherwise all involved reported a profitable weekend.
He said sideshow alley was busy and there were several big rides this year that were well received.
The traders were happy with the result.
In fact they were so impressed that the show is next year likely to be one of the first to see rides that have yet to appear on the Australian show circuit.
The attractions were spread out further onto the Memorial Oval for the first time this year and the result of that will be reviewed prior to next year.
The animal nursery was again a huge attraction with prizes associated with the exhibits announced yesterday. First was BH High School's sheep, second were Amanda Hamilton's puppies and third were Laine King's rats.
* Two great traditions of the Silver City Show, fireworks and dodgem cars, were big attractions over the weekend.
