It's Show Time

The Royal Adelaide Show.
A show that had kids acting up in school in the weeks leading to it and one week after they had been to it.
And a show that makes parents hit the depths of their emotions (and their pockets).

I had never known there to be so much excitement over any show and had to see it for myself.

There were pig races.

             Oink! Oink! Time to pig out after all that exercise!

There were animals (alpacas, cows, horses) and animal shows.
 
               moo...


Someone obviously did not agree with my views about Animal Farm.

You could also select and buy the animals on sale there.
There were competitions, eg wood-cutting.
Thrills and spills from motorbike stunts.
 Vroom...
 Vroom...Vroom... and
 Oops, another one bites the dust.

Game booths, food, vendors selling all kinds of things - from recuitment booths set up by the Army to jacuzzis and school enrolment booths.
And to top it all, a Big Boy Ballet - a precision, synchronised 'dance' performed by 4 Bobcat vehicles.


        Who said mechanical movements and ballet don't mix?


Of course, the happiest people are the kids and those young-at-heart.
They get to buy show bags like
     
                    this                         and this.

It was also the first occasion I tried out my new camera.
And I must say I hadn't done justice to it on my first try.

I will be back.
