Moree Show 2019: All the action on Friday

The smell of dagwood dogs and fairy floss filled the air, while music from the rides echoed throughout Moree Showgrounds on Friday as the 2019 Moree Show kicked off.

The action began early on Friday morning with horse events and showjumping before the pavilions opened at 12pm.

There's some amazing talent on display in the pavilions, with a large number of entries in everything from photography to baked goods, local produce to art and craft, from Moree residents young and old.

Families made the most of the quieter day, getting in early on Friday to avoid the crowds and queues on the rides, while many people enjoyed taking their time viewing the entries on show in the pavilions.

The crowds began flocking through the gates later in the afternoon on Friday, ahead of the popular Gill Bros. Rodeo in the evening.

Gates open to the rodeo at 5pm, with all the thrills and spills to get underway in the main ring from 6.30pm.

Saturday will be action-packed, beginning with showjumping from 7.30am and yard dog trials at 8.30am.

The pavilions will open from 9am and the pet show will get underway at 10am.

Scott Stuntz Comedy Magician will perform at 10.30am, 12.30pm and 3.30pm, while Junior Showgirl entries will be taken at 11.30am.

The great dog race will be at 2pm, followed by the official ceremony at 2.45pm and grand parade at 3pm.

The rest of the afternoon and evening will be full of entertainment with the whipcracking, farmers' challenge, tug-of-war, tyre chuck, ute barrel races and dog high jump.

The feature event, Rooftop Express, will begin at 6.30pm, followed by fireworks at 7.30pm and the popular demolition derby at 7.45pm.
