FAMILY fun, rides and competitions can be discovered at this year's Murgon show.

Show president Joan Adams said, "there's lots of fun entertainment on the day.”

The Murgon show society especially looks forward to seeing the community's hidden talents and unique skills at the 2018 talent show, which will open on the Friday and close with a grand final Saturday afternoon.

Ms Adams expects a brilliant performance from a man who will create a wooden sculpture with his chainsaw, to be auctioned at 5.50pm on the Saturday.

For primary aged children who think they have top colouring in skills, they can try their artistic hand at the show's colouring in competition.

Colouring in sheets can be downloaded from the show's website if they want to see how their skills match up against their peers.

Junior champion fruit and vegetable growers can try their hand at the competitions, with categories including weirdest shaped or novelty decorated fruit or vegetables.

If their particular taste is cakes, scones or decorated arrowroot biscuits, children who find themselves whizzes in the kitchen may enter in the junior categories.

The show also calls all future designers and engineers for the Murgon Show Lego competition, expecting to see some inspiring original designs.

Catch a glimpse of the diverse skills our kids have on display at this year's show.
