For decades, people visiting the Bombala Show have been able to enjoy a sit down two course luncheon and/or afternoon tea in the pavilion dining area.

"We usually serve more than 200 meals during the day that consist of salads, meats and desserts with slices and cuppa's for  morning and afternoon tea," organiser Bronwyn Podger said.

"We rely heavily on everyone's help, the donation of food and those people who donate money that allows us buy extra meat from the butcher's.

"There are people that make salads, people on the land that donate the meat and volunteers that come in on show day and help with the preparation and afterwards the clean-up," Ms Podger said.

It's a huge day for the sisters and their volunteers who start in the kitchen around 7am working right through to the end of the show.

"Then it's back the next day for the final clean-up and put away.

"A two course meal is only $15 and morning or afternoon tea $5.

"I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that donates and helps on the day, we couldn't do it without you," Ms Podger said. "If anybody is interested in taking over at the next show, we would love to hear from you."

Bombala Show Society president, Colleen McCoy said the Show Committee were pleased to present this years show with a circus theme.

"We will have a marquee area where people will be able to sit and take part in food supplied by other vendors including gourmet trailer trucks and show barbecue food.

"The young and the young at heart can participate in activities including juggling, uni-cycling and more.

"The Bombala Show always puts on an amazing display of exhibits in the pavilion from local community members and regional exhibitors," Mrs McCoy said.

"Don't forget to get your entries in for the pavilion sections on Wednesday and Thursday prior to the show."
