Bengalla Upper Hunter Show thrills crowds on second day of festival

THE Bengalla Upper Hunter Show has continued to wildly entertain crowds on Saturday as rides, smiles, laughs and, of course, food were out in full force.

Show-goers were treated to a wonderful atmosphere as one of the region's most prominent events went all out make sure the day was remembered for fun instead of poor weather.

The drizzle of rain did little to deter families from having a great time at the Muswellbrook Showground, with people swarming in to take in the wide range of activities on offer.

Bumper cars remained a popular choice, while the more daring rides such as Midnight Madness were responsible for many of the screams heard throughout the day.

There were plenty of sweets and savoury on offer and the much-needed coffee for busy parents and carers, or journalists who aren't used to early rises on weekends.
