Dubbed 'showtime in the suburbs', this mini Royal show has been running for thirty-nine years. Held annually at the Clem Jones Centre in Carina, this fun family event raises funds for local charities and community groups, many whom call the Clem Jones Centre home. This year's Crackerjack Carnival will take place over two days, Saturday, June 1 and Sunday, June 2.
Like Ekka, only much more affordable, the Crackerjack Carnival will host a number of exciting events and activities including sheep shearing, blacksmithing, pig racing, pony and camel rides. There'll be art and craft exhibits, woodworking demonstrations, and a model railway display. Kids will enjoy the animal farm, reptiles display, amusement rides, and show bags. Win a prize at Side Show Alley, grab a bite to eat at one of the food stalls, and enjoy a beer at the popular Crackerjack XXXX Bar. This fantastic day will finish in spectacular fashion with a dazzling fireworks display.
