Popular ute event gets ‘bigger and bigger’

Organisers of the Albion Park Ute Show are hoping that Sunday’s event will be the biggest in its eight-year history. 

Last year, the show attracted 140 utes but hopes are this year that number will climb above 150, as the show continues to attract vehicles from across the country. 

‘‘Each year the show just gets bigger and bigger,’’ organiser Heidi Caldwell said.

‘‘The 140 we had last year was our biggest yet and I think we’ll top that this year. 

‘‘Last year’s winner was a ute from Queensland and we had two utes come down from the Northern Territory as well.’’

In recent times, several award-winning utes have taken part in the show. 

The show will feature 17 major categories, including Ute of Show, Best Street Ute, Best Rural/Country Ute, Best Vintage Ute and Best Chicks’ Ute, and minor categories. 

The show will take place at the Albion Park Showground on Sunday from 7am.

Entries are taken on the day, by 10.30am, and they cost $20 each.
