It's showtime for Murwillumbah

WHETHER it's the agricultural aspects, the carnival food or Sideshow Alley, there will be something for everyone

Tweed River Agricultural Society secretary Peita Gardiman said with the showground taking shape throughout the week, organisers were hoping for good weather, despite some predicted showers.

"The Monster Trucks arrive on site this week and we're just hoping the weather holds out for the weekend,” Ms Gardiman said.
