Saving the best for last
Rides at The Show
Flying high at the Adelaide Showgrounds

You went on the rides at the Show in September. You looked your retro best at the Adelaide Vintage Expo . You had a psychic reading at the Body, Mind, Spirit Festival and was told you would return to the Showgrounds before the year is out. But why, what remains for you to do at the Showgrounds at the end of 2012?

The answer, it would seem, is plenty. And you don't need a psychic to tell you that- just visit the Adelaide Event & Exhibition Centre website for a list of coming attractions.

Supernova was awesome. A great 2 days. Ozcon last year was very good, and hopefully that will be coming back in 2013 as well.
