Local talent on show
CREATIVITY and talent has been well on display at Show Whitsunday's Horticultural, Arts & Crafts Pavillion today.
Chief steward of the Pavillion, Colleen Johnson, said the number of entries had significantly increased from previous years.
"We've loved seeing so many people get involved this year," she said.
"All of the entries have been absolutely incredible."
Quilts and needlework, sculptures, paintings, photography, fruit and vegetables, horticulture, cooking and craft are just some of the categories on show.
One stand out category was the painted pumpkins created by local children.
Kids had the chance to grab a pumpkin and decorate it any way they desired before submitting it into a competition and for display at Show Whitsunday.
Carlo Moretto's creativity took out the prize, with his pumpkin decorated as a crab.
Being a part of the pavilion since 2001, Ms Johnson said the level of talent never ceased to amaze her.
"When you see it all come together, it's all worth the hard work you put into it," she said.
"(And) when you see all the entries from kids it's really exciting to see them getting involved too."
