The Ferris wheel is in place, the pavilion is buzzing, there's last minute hammering of nails and the horse show is practising in the arena.
It can all only mean one thing: the 39th Mount Isa Show starts tomorrow, Friday June 18.
Show president Anne Pittis said she was nervous and excited as she counted down the hours before gates open at 9am.
"Come down and enjoy a great day at the show," Ms Pittis said.
"We have show rides, we have dinosaurs, baby animals, face painting and motorbikes and much more."
A highlight of the show will be the Night of the Horse spectacular in the main rodeo arena on Friday and Saturday nights with entry included in the show entry ticket.
The Show's two showgirls will be around the grounds and there will be judging of junior showgirls and tiny tots on the Saturday morning.
The Pavilion is full of baked goodies as well as photographs, art and an amazing Lego exhibit from local man Phillip Kemp.
For equine fanciers there will be a program in the main ring while the bronco branding will take place in the rodeo arena.
Ms Pittis said they have worked hard to make it a Covid-safe show only accepting those who have been on the Queensland show circuit. There will be contact tracing on the gate.
Tickets are $25 per person, $10 aged care pensioners and students 6-17 with kids under 6 free.
