IT'S showtime!

Day one of the three-day Bundaberg Show will kick off this morning with gates opening at 8am.

There will be plenty of action for young and old with rides, games, exhibits, horse events and pavilion entries sure to entertain.

Fourth-generation show worker Luke Hennessy said he was glad to be back in town for the show.

"It's been a family business since 1946 and we've been coming to Bundaberg for over 40 years," Mr Hennessy said.

"It's a joy to come here and put smiles on dials."

Mr Hennessy, who owns four attractions at the show, said the event was packed with rides, game and stallholders.

"There's so much equipment here," he said.

"There's not an inch to spare."

Mr Hennessy has brought a new attraction to the Bundy Show this year - Water Balls.

"They're a clear plastic ball that you hop inside and then you get in a pool of water and you walk on water, kind of like a hamster wheel," he said.

Another fourth-generation show worker, Marcus Waller, said the show was sure to be a cracker.

"It's pretty full this year," he said.

"I've travelled the show my whole life; it's really good."
