A Merry-Go Round Of Prizes To Be Won

The upcoming Mackay Show promises something for everyone in your family, including your beloved furry companion!

Mayor Greg Williamson highlighted the wide range of prizes on offer at this year's Mackay Regional Council display, including two ‘pawfect’ pet pamper packs.

“Our Local Laws team will be promoting pet registration at the Mackay Show and have partnered with Mackay City Pet Barn to offer an incentive for new pet registrations,” Mayor Williamson said.

“Any resident who registers their pet for the first time in June and fills in an entry form at the Mackay Show will go in the draw to win one of two, five-hundred-dollar pet pamper packs,” he said.

“If people can’t make it to the Show, they can still enter by filling in an entry form on the council Show web page and registering their pet online.”

The Sarina Sugar Shed will also be back by popular demand and will be the centrepiece of the pavilion again this year, Mayor Williamson said.

“The Sugar Shed team will have a delicious range of free taste-testers for people to try and buy, including their award-winning sauces, chutneys and liqueurs," he said.

“There will be Sugar Shed fairy floss for sale for the kids and they will even have an augmented reality board, allowing people to interact with the display in virtual reality.”

Council’s Mackay Show display hours are 2pm to 8pm Tuesday (June 18), 10.30am to 8pm Wednesday (June 19) and 9am to 4pm on the public holiday (Thursday, June 20).
