The Wondai Miss Showgirl was once again a hotly contested event.

The winner, Emma Thompson said it was a great day and she was looking forward to her upcoming showgirl journey.

"The next step is South Burnett Showgirl so I'll need to start thinking about how to stand out from the other girls," she said.

 

Talented musician, Amber Goldsmith was the afternoon entertainment and she said it was a great atmosphere playing to such a happy crowd.

"It was great playing to lots of people all enjoying themselves" she said.

I had some lovely feedback from the crowd."
