TODAY’S Bushy Park Show was the most successful in five years, show society secretary Alison Hennessy said as the event wrapped up this afternoon.

A full program of events was enjoyed at the 145th show, held in warm and sunny conditions on the Bushy Park Showground on Gordon River Rd.

The predicted maximum temperature of 26 degrees was reached in the early afternoon and peaked at 28.6 as the show was winding down at 4.30pm. Forecast light showers did not eventuate.

More than 2200 people attended the event, which was one of the best turnouts in recent years. Former Tasmanian of the Year and 21-time world champion axeman David Foster attended as an ambassador for the recently re-launched Derwent Valley Gazette and said he was impressed by the event, which he remembered visiting with his father in years past.

This show-goer and her pet had many admirers.
