From car soccer to a pizza eating competition, the 120th Annual Cobargo Show hit full swing over the weekend.

With hot weather Saturday and cooler wet weather Sunday, Cobargo AP & H Society secretary Roslyn Mead said 800 people passed through the gates each day putting the attendance on par with last year.

“We are happy with the crowd and everyone really enjoyed themselves, even running around in the mud,” Ms Mead said.

Despite the unique weather change, the show brought the community together, she said.

“It was a really nice atmosphere, and everyone was really happy to have some rain,” Ms Mead said.

Royal Agricultural Society of NSW president Robert Ryan welcomed the crowd on Saturday with Show Society president Graham Parr and State Member for Bega Andrew Constance and his wife Jennifer, who said it was great to see so many people in the crowd.

Making the rounds and performing their official duties were Junior Showgirl Sarah Alderton, Showgirl runner-up Grace Whitby and Showgirl Vanessa Gates.

Boots and rain coats were essential on Sunday, with six-year-old Clancy Grebert and her siblings Emma and Harry making the most of it.
