CHILDREN'S art, needlework and preserves are just some of the displays featured in the pavilion at this year's Moree Show.

The show has been an annual event for the district since 1874.

It promotes agriculture and showcases the talents of our residents, who display their exhibits and compete in events.

Many visitors enjoy viewing the handiwork of participants in the pavilion, starting with arts created by children.

Pet rocks, necklaces made from pasta, cardboard toilet roll animals and caterpillars made from recycled items will be displayed at this year's show, which will be held from April 26 to 27 at the Moree Showground in McElhone Street.

Children aged from six to 13 have also been invited to create chocolate spiders, decorated patty cakes (which have a special prize) chocolate brownies with pecans and savoury muffins.

Older people are also invited to try showcase their skills in fine arts. There will be entries from people aged between 70 and 90.

The champion exhibit will receive a ribbon and $20.

Beading, silver jewellery, mosaics, lead lighting, folk art and leatherwork will also be on display.

In the agricultural produce section, there will be prizes awarded for best class of durum wheat, barley, canola, sorghum, chick peas, pulses and oil seeds.

Produce attracts a major award, with the overall most successful exhibitor receiving a ribbon and prize valued at $100.
