Homegrown actor and author, William McInnes, will officially open Redcliffe City Show at 7pm on the opening day.

The much loved performer grew up in Redcliffe with his four siblings, leaving in the mid-1980s to study acting at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts.

Back in town for the show’s launch, McInnes will no doubt relish the moment when he declares the event to be officially open.

As with the seasons, the show promises to deliver some fresh new performances and activities along with the familiar favourites.

After an intense day of horse judging and show jumping, poultry judging and a championship dog show, the launch night is filled with V8 and moto cross action.


Who doesn’t get shivers up and down their spine when the words “Globe of Death” and “Wheel of Steel” are mentioned?

Witness the daring feats of Warren Brophy on the latter as he skips, juggles and flips, etc, on and in a rotating steel cage. It is 11 metres away from solid ground and Brophy has no nets or wires to save him if he falls.

Monsterfireworks follow and there will also be fireworks on Saturday night.

The kids will love the camel rides, animal nursery, puppet show, show bags and good old fashioned rides and sideshow alley games.

There will be live music, an arts and crafts display, an array of food stalls and many more special events during an action-packed three days.

The show has a long history that dates back to 1949 (first year 1959) and family members of its founders are still involved to this day. That is awesome and admirable!
