‘Paint it Red,’ is the theme for this year’s Trunkey Creek show and the organising committee are excited by what is promising to be an excellent show.

Organiser Peggy Brown said that the town is bristling with excitement, and it’s not just because the pub has reopened.

“We’re having a working bee out here on Thursday and Friday ready for the opening on Saturday morning,” she said.

Getting 'Reddy': Trunkey Creek's residents are getting into the spirit of the show and are  decking the town in red.

The show was cancelled in 2016 due to the overly wet conditions, that’s certainly not an issue this year.

The Australian Champion Fleece
