Pretty ponies, scream-inducing rides and shiny Thunderbirds were high on the hit parade at Saturday’s Sunbury Agricultural Show.

It was the 98th anniversary of the grand annual show.

More than 1300 entries were received for the arts and crafts section.

Sunbury’s Fiona Warncke, her 22-year-old daughter, Rachael, and her mother, Marlene Benz, battled it out for the top prize in crochet.

Ms Benz picked up the overall arts and crafts grand prize, while Ms Warncke won the crochet event and Rachel took home minor prizes.

Event secretary Sandy Baun said the show attracted the most people since 2014, with about 13,000 visitors flooding through the gates at Sunbury Recreation Reserve.

“It was a huge success,” Ms Baun said. “There were lots of horses and I think the camel rides were one our most popular rides.

“The pavilion was brilliant as always, with ladies from Gisborne demonstrating spinning and weaving in the crafts section.

“Always very popular was Chris Humfrey with the Wild Action zoo.”

A local junior ambassador, Amber Karris, was chosen to represent Sunbury at an upcoming regional show.

Ms Baun thanked all the volunteers and sponsors who contributed to the event.
