THIS year's show will be crammed into two days of action-packed fun according to Fraser Coast Show Society executive officer Martine Britton, who said the shortening of the show would have no affect on its ability to wow a crowd.
With only five short weeks left until the gates to the Maryborough Showgrounds open on May 25-26, planning has been ramped up to ensure this year's show was one of the best yet.
Ms Britton said everything was well on track for this year's show, though the 2012 show would be busier than previous years.
"Because we are cutting down from three days to two, there will be more to see and do on both days," Ms Britton said.
"There is a full line-up of entertainment for Saturday.
"We will have the equestrian work then the rodeo and finally the stunt show."
Ms Britton said all of the centre ring events and animal displays were lined up for the show, though organisers were still waiting for a response from officials about the advanced sale of show-ride tickets.
"In the past we have had ride tokens that are available to people ahead of the show," she said.
"At the moment we are unsure if we will have the tickets, as we are waiting for a response from officials."
