The Royal Melbourne Show for this year is largely going unnoticed. Without the usual pomp and ceremony, parades, smell of fresh hay, sideshow alley, stinky but lush animals in their sector, food stalls and more (can you just smell it; feel it!), it's passing like a sigh escaping our lips. Don't let it! Join it online and show it some love! Get onboard from 19-29 September 2020 and relive the fun of the Fair, thus keeping the show spirit alive! see here for the Full Program.

The good news for the kids (sorry mums and dads) is that you can still get showbags; delivered straight to your door! Bring a little joy and smiles to the faces of little ones. Can't think of a better time to spoil them. Scroll down the page via the link given and you'll be able to click on the organisations participating to order your favourite showbags. As an added bonus, follow the Royal Melbourne Show Facebook for your chance to win 1 of 5 showbag prize packs worth $500! Instagram is a great way to stay updated too. While your thoughts are on the kids, get them the FREE printable farm colouring pages here thanks to Ayelet Keshet Art as well.

Tune in NOW! Find new competitions, memorable moments from past events, interviews with the show community, fantastic giveaways from some of the sponsors, themed days, profiles of farmers and agricultural experts eg Humans of Agriculture, live FARMCAM, videos and more. It takes a variety of talented and passionate people to bring The Show to life each year and while the gates won't open, agriculture, competitors and exhibitors that support the show each year will still be promoted. Get onboard on all social media and digital platforms and continue this beautiful tradition and iconic event that's woven into the fabric of Melbourne. Stay tuned because The Show plans to return bigger and better in 2021 from Thursday 23 September to Sunday 3 October at Melbourne Showgrounds.

There are competitions galore and thanks to the beauty of being online, you're not too late, and will still find them. Check out the Art, Craft & Cookery Mask Making Creative Challenge Competition winner and competitors here. It certainly fits the theme of our daily life. Visit Spotlight for free patterns and instructional videos on how to make our own reusable DIY face mask and challenge yourself as to how you can make it creatively different.
