    The awesome fireworks display
    That ends our fun filled Show Day
    With a bang boom crash
    Explosive colours crash
    Up high in the air
    We all stop and stare
    The bright illuminious sky
    Watching pyrotechnics fly
    People applaud and stare
    Are perfect end for another year

    I love so many things, but I think seeing it through the eyes of the kids is the best thing around. As we get older it’s easy to become a little jaded and not fully appreciate what’s going on around us. The kids bring it all back to life though and their excitement is so infectious! Aside from all of that my favourite thing is a delicious hot chocolate and some freshly cooked hot cinnamon donuts right at the end of the night. When you’re so exhausted after spending the day there they give you just enough energy to drag your weary selves back to the car for the drive home.

    At the Royal Adelaide show since my childhood.

    So off to the show, I’ll go again this year,
    And wait in the stands til I see,
    The wood choppers chop their logs of wood,
    It’s the highlight of the show for me.

    I love the memories I have of going to the show when I was kid with my family, going on rides, eating until I was sick (literally), seeing shows, and of course, show bags. I loved the tradition we had of going through our show bags when we got home to swap items we didn’t want or like with ones we did (and dad always got the phantom comics). I love that I am going to get to create those memories with my kids now.

    Each year we have discovered something new to love about the show. We can’t possibly see it all in one day and so we keep it interesting by discovering a new thing to love and do that we can look forward to in the following year. When the kids were toddlers, it was the children’s zone. They grew and were able to ride ponies the following year. One year it was the petting zoo.. soon enough we loved & weren’t scared anymore by bugs & reptiles too! It’s the simple pleasures my kids remember. Childlike wonder is key to happiness at the show!

    I really enjoy seeing the excitement in my young grandchildren’s faces, as they explore all the activities around the show grounds. Catching the train there and home adds to their excitement, as well. We always love the animals, large and small. The Yellow Brick Road Show bag is great value, and provides healthy snacks throughout the day. My 4yo grandson especially loves watching the Motor X Team events in the Main Arena, as he tells everyone he is going to race motorbikes when he grows up. No wonder Nannas end up with grey hair!

    We haven’t been for a few years and my youngest can’t remember going so this year I’m looking forward to seeing his face light up with excitement and he said he wants to see a cow up close.

    I love the excitement on my children’s faces,takes me back to the excitement I felt as a child going to the show with my parents. We love the animals and fireworks and spending the whole day together not having to worry about work or school.

    The Royal Adelaide Show celebrates and showcases our great state and is lots of FUN. We love the food, the fireworks, the sideshows, the rides, the pavilions… and enjoying it together as a family.

    The Adelaide show is for families to just have fun, hoping to win for a dear friend so she can have some quality time with her family.

    The atmosphere! So many happy families enjoying themselves!
    I’m not going to lie, I do also love the snacks and the lolly showbags 🙂
    & this year Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles & Paw Patrol will be at the show so I am sure there will be a lot of very excited young ones!

    I love people watching – what the fashion trends are, what they’ve been buying at the show. I love the sampling of the foods and drinks, and could almost make a meal out of all the samples. Love the show.

    I love the whole day at the show, just going through the gate starts the magic. The halls filled with amazing things to look at and happy people to talk to. The sampling hall filled with produce to taste, the food stalls where we can purchase tasty food then sit on the grass and watch events on the arena. The animals where we can learn to milk a cow, pat the pigs, look at the cats and dogs and horses, the sample bags we have to have, cant go home with out some.
    And of course side show alley with the rides and the laughing clowns the kids love to put balls in their mouths. The fireworks if we are there on the right day and we still have enough energy to last the night to watch.

    Our family loves going to the show, we have 2 kids with a 5 year gap and this often means they they don’t enjoy doing the same things. We never have this problem at the Royal Adelaide Show though, this is a place we can all go together as a family and everyone gets something out of it. The South Australian farm exhibit is a really special place, being able to get close to and even hold farm animals is fantastic.

    My mum use to take me to the show every year. We didn’t do alot of things like this but our visits to the royal show stands out in my mind growing up; memories of getting to spend a quality day together doing tonnes of fun things and eating lots of “sometimes” foods. My mum has passed away now, but when I take my daughter and son to the show I feel nostalgic; like she is there with us. I hope one day that my kids will remember our visits together as fondly I have and a tradition I hope to continue for many years.

    The sounds, sights and smells! Show time is such a special time of the year here in Adelaide and As a child I remember my whole year revolving around show time and I’d love to take my two little girls along to experience such a event and create some memories of our own.

    With both of our kiddies being young, they haven’t had many show opportunities yet (like I had growing up!) But in the 3 times my daughter has been and the 1 time my little man has, the look of excitement on their faces is one myself as a parent will NEVER forget! The sounds, smells, rides, animals, showbags, sideshows, fireworks…..the list goes on! We love and look forward to making MANY wonderful childhood memories at the show! 🙂 <3 <3

    I have always loved the Show as a child, it was a special family time. We were allowed a couple of show bags and a couple of rides, but the day was spent walking around and seeing all the sights, animals and shows. This is exactly what I want for my two boys. We usually go for the whole day, take our snacks and packed lunch, and spend the day enjoying quality family time. I allow my boys a couple of show bags which they love. But they also love seeing the animals, the shows, the smell, sights and noises of the show. We have a picnic around the arena so we can watch the parades and they make sure they last the day so they can see the fire works at the end of the night. It is a special day which we talk about for months later, and it proves to my children we don’t need to spend a lot of money to enjoy ourselves. I would love to have this opportunity to do this again this year.

    I love the sensory part of the Adelaide Show! An eclectic mix of smelly animals, deep fried delights and sweet sticky fairy floss. The Animals are a great element of the show, it keeps the feel and the original meaning behind the show and brings the sense of a rural show to the city. The sounds and laughter of kids and good family time shared is also a highlight for me! Also the amazing amount of entries to competitions and animal events amazes me!

    As a kid we went every year and my favourite things were the animal nursery, the fireworks and the showbags. But as soon as you walked through the gates the atmosphere was exciting. I only ever eat those dinkum dogs at the show. My kids have never been and I’d love to take them do they can share the same experiences.

    I took my daughter for the first time last year and will always remember just the look of overwhelmed shock on her face. She was so excited to see the animals and the Ferris wheel. It was just an amazing bonding time with my daughter and was lucky enough to have my mum there to share it too. As hectic as show time is, it’s such a great family time and something really special to share
