Time for the party of a century

THE Killarney Show and Rodeo will start its 100th show celebrations on Saturday night with the Celebrations Ball, where the 2012 Miss Show Girl will be announced.

Memphis Moovers will keep the crowd dancing the night away as they play songs from the '50s to the '80s and beyond.

The Celebrations Ball is about celebrating 100 years of music, dance and costume.

Patrons can come dressed in a costume of their favourite era.

Tickets are available from Miss Showgirl entrants or at the Killarney Newsagency.

On Saturday night the three showgirl entrants will be presented before the audience after an afternoon of judging.

Entrants in this year's Miss Showgirl are 19-year-old veterinary nurse Reba Thompson, 20-year-old childcare worker Maggie Evans and 20-year-old Leanne Taylor.

The Killarney Show and Rodeo Society will be having a working bee on Sunday to put finishing touches in place for the 100th show.

All volunteers are welcome to come along and give a hand, and the working bee will begin at 10am.
