Sunbury’s Tahlia and Bella-Anne are prepping pets Dusty and Chester for their appearance in the Pet Parade at Sunbury Show on Saturday.

This weekend’s show marks the 97th grand annual Sunbury Agricultural Show.

Novelty section organiser Anne Clements said the 97th show was set to be entertaining for everyone in the community.

“We’ve got a lot of highlights in the show,” Ms Clements said.

In charge of the pet events, the grandmother said the Pet Parade would be returning for the 27th year to show off adored pets.

Various breeds of dogs, hamsters, chooks, rabbits, goats and sheep will be carried and led in a procession by children and adults.

Pets can also be entered to receive prizes for the longest tail, best costume and most well-behaved.

But Ms Clements said the show’s main highlight would be the contents of the pavilion, featuring arts and crafts, floral art, cake decorating and preserves.

She said sheep trials would also return to the show for the second time and trucks would be parked for children to explore.

Sunbury Agricultural Show will take place on Saturday, October 14, from 8.30am-4.30pm at Clarke Oval in Sunbury.

Tickets are $15 for adults, $5 for children and competitor passes cost $30.
