The 137th annual Yankalilla Show is just around the corner, and it promises to have something to entertain everyone.

Gates open to the public at 9am on Saturday, October 5, and Wendy Hunt will officially open the show at the Yankalilla, Rapid Bay and Myponga Agricultural and Horticultural Society showgrounds at 12noon.

All the classic competitions and demonstrations will be put on throughout the day, including draught horses, Yalkin Spanish dancing horses, and the Fleurieu Antique Rural Machinery Display.

Entertainment will be held throughout the day on both the shearing shed stage and the main stage, including live music and shearing demonstrations.

There will be show rides and sideshow attractions galore, along with camel and pony rides, showbags, and plenty of food.

A hands-on animal nursery, run by Radicool Reptiles, give people of all ages the chance to get up close with critters in the Normanville Natural Resources Centre marquee.

James' Travelling Magic Show is expected to be a hit with children and families.

Attendees can browse through the competitive exhibits in the main hall and pic up some local produce in the market stalls.

A live judging of the finals of the rich fruit cake and Genoa cake championships will take place.

The Aldinga and Sellicks Spinners and Knitters will run a Shorn to Worn demonstration, turning fleece into wearable items, and the art and photography sections are packed with local talent.
