Boots and more at Gloucester Show 

THE Gloucester Show ‘Boots and All’ mini theatre will be set up in a pavilion on Friday, April 4.

The theatre will screen a short production on the origin of boots - how they are made - and the story of RM Williams, a successful Australian boot maker. 

Along with associated games the show will cater for school children on Friday morning. 

General public presentations will take place at 2pm on Friday and on Saturday, April 5 at 11am and 2pm.

A boot muster will take place at this year’s show.

Patrons are invited to enter their boot in the muster.

Judges will decide who in Gloucester has the most comfortable boot; the shiniest boot; the oldest boot; the hardest worked boot and the sexiest boot. Boots will be on display with prizes in each category. 

Entries will be accepted from 10am Friday until 10am Saturday.

A boot chuck will be open to all over 16s with events for female and male entrants. Competitors will throw an elastic-sided boot with the winner the person that can throw a boot the furthest. 

The boot throw will be held on Saturday afternoon at about 2pm in the ring. 

A total prize pool of $250 in open orders, including RM Williams vouchers, is up for grabs. 

Entry is $2 and will be accepted at the event site half an hour before the start of competition.

For those keen to flaunt their wares on the catwalk a boot fashion parade will be held in the main pavilion.

The cat walk is designed so that only the boots and legs are judged. 

Enter on the day for $2 with lots of fun guaranteed. 

The fashion parade will be held after the grand parade with first prize a $50 open order. 

Entries will be accepted at the ‘Boots and All’ stand in the pavilion from midday Saturday.

Definite times and places will be announced nearer the occasion.
