A RIVERLAND agricultural show will receive an additional injection of funds, as its committee begins planning a comeback event for later this year.
AFTER a one-year hiatus, the Loxton Show will return this October, with planning now under way.
THE Loxton Agricultural Horticultural Society has completed its first stage of upgrades from the $64,000 Federal Government grant it received last year.
NEW funding support of $70,000 is aimed at helping the Riverland’s largest public event recover from the impacts of COVID-19.
RIVERLANDERS holding out hope for this year’s Loxton Show have been crushed, with organisers calling off the event last Thursday.
THE Riverland community will have to hold its breath a little longer as it awaits a decision on the future of this year’s Loxton Show later this month.
WITH just five months until its expected commencement date, the fate of this year’s Loxton Show remains uncertain.
