Get out & about at the Easter Show
Every few years or so I catch the bus with Leanne and go to the Sydney Royal Easter Show. Here we will spend most of the day wandering around looking at attractions that interest us and last year was the first time in a while that I had gone and for me it was as a senior on Senior's Day. We are going to give it a miss this year and maybe wait a few years and take the grandsons out for a day.

Last year I set myself a task to try and see the following attractions:

1. Sydney Royal Wood chopping & Sawing Competition.

2. Sydney Royal Flower & Garden Show Display.

So much to see at the Garden and Flower attraction. Image by Gary Brown.

3. Bonnie Yard Dogs.

4. District Exhibits.

5. Purina Pro Plan Sydney Royal Dog Show.

6. Royal Arts & Crafts Leatherwork Feature Display.

7. Horse Experience.

8. Live Bee Demonstrations.

9. Sheep Shearing Demonstration.

10. Grand Parade.

11. Sydney Royal Rodeo Series.

12. Fireworks Finale.

We got close, as we only missed 7, 8, 9, 11 & 12 and we ran out of time to go to the show bag pavilion as we were totally exhausted.

So if I was to go again this year what would I like to go and see?
It would have to be the following;

1. Wood chopping & Sawing Competition.

2. Bonnie Yard Dogs.

3. District Exhibits.

4. Grand Parade.

5. Sydney Royal Rodeo Series.

6. Fireworks Finale.

And we would also like to go and see some of the following attractions;

7. The Australian Women's Weekly Theatre Kitchen

Make sure you check the starting times. Otherwise you will miss out. Image by Gary Brown.

8. Bee-Zeebo

9. Australian Whip Cracking Championships and World Bullock Whip Championship.

10. Flower and Garden competition.

11. Show bag pavilion to get that liquorice bag we missed out on last year.
