Despite tough drought conditions, the Ashford Show Society will host their 36th annual show on Saturday and it's set to be action-packed.
Not only will there be plenty to see and do, entry will be free and the first 400 adults through the gate will receive a $5 meal ticket to be used at the canteen, barbecue or bar.
The society hasn't forgotten the younger show-goers either because the first 200 school-aged kids will receive a ticket to be used anywhere in sideshow alley.
Gates will open at 7am with horse events in ring two starting at 8am. The pavilion will open at midday and there will be a lolly scramble at 1pm followed by an egg and spoon race and sack race at 2pm.
Horse sports will get started in ring two at 2pm. Show jump will start at 3pm and the Iron Man will test the district's toughest at 4pm. Live entertainment will also kick off around 4pm.
The Severn River Sprint will take place at 4.30pm and the official opening will be at 6pm before the ram riding at 6.30pm.
Following will be the Ryan Julius Memorial Poddy Ride and Tyson Lavender Memorial Steer Ride at 7pm. At 8.10pm the Farmers Challenge will go ahead (if time permits) and the show will close with fireworks at 9.30pm.
Amid all the action will see the return of the dog jump with thanks to the NSW Farmers Association - Ashford/Bonshaw branch.
"Does your mutt have what it takes to jump high and win? We have sections for big and little dogs so don't forget to bring your bestie to the show and let him/her prove their worth," the society wrote on their website.
There will be an array of prizes, trophies and ribbons.
Organising a show takes an enormous amount of work, and the society are always looking for new faces and hands to help out.
If you'd like to get involved, or have some new ideas you'd like to share, meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month at the Ashford Bowling Club starting at 7.30pm.

"Well the drought has hammered us hard and we've had to reduce the show to a single day but, don't let that put you off. We have packed so much into one day, you may need Sunday just to recover!"
