THE Emerald Show Society is encouraging locals to crack out the umbrellas and gumboots as the 'show must go on' despite the rain.

Due to the wet weather show-goers will receive discounted entries of $5 for adults, pensioners, and high school students.

Primary school-ages students are free.

The gate prize draw will be held at 3pm so make sure you're there.

"Gates are open so come on down," a spokeswoman said.
