Did we snap a photo of you at the Fraser Coast Show?

THOUSANDS of people across the Fraser Coast would have spent the weekend munching their way through their sample bags after this year's show.

By lunchtime on Friday the showgrounds parking in Maryborough West was full, as thousands of people struggled to find the perfect spot to leave their car as they grabbed their ticket and entered the show.

Show society president Keryn Staib said he hoped they would be around 10,000 once numbers are counted; about the same as last year.

"We had steady crowds all day," Mr Staib said.

"At the end of the day, whatever the numbers are, we put on the best show we could - it's up to the people of the Fraser Coast to come and support us."

The traditional show highlights, including the livestock and poultry judging, gave farmers and producers from the Fraser Coast and beyond a chance to showcase their work.

And for the younger thrill-seekers the fast-paced rides, balloon art and show bags left the crowd smiling.

Mr Staib said a combination of great weather and plenty to do made the day great.

"We watched the grand parade and credit to everybody that participated and the people who organised it.

"We had great weather, and the crowds were fairly good."
