Adelaide local who loves her city
Event: -

Who can resist this iconic Adelaide event? Certainly not me and I love going every year. There is always something new going on and of course lots to see and do. My favourite place to visit first is where the baby animals are, especially the piglets. The Royal Adelaide Show originally began as a place where farmers could present their produce and stock, compete for prizes and of course the accolades from their fellow farmers.

This still happens these days of course but with a much larger variety of farm and domestic animals, displays and information booths on everything you could possibly imagine. It is still really a giant market with producers showcasing their wares. Perhaps one thing that has changed is that the showbags were free to the public once upon a time. Unfortunately that is no longer the case but we still seem to enjoy buying them.

Don't forget the nightly fireworks and rallycar displays, one of our family favourite events. Going at night is the best as you get to experience all the lights and colour that is the Royal Adelaide Show.
