    We have not been to the show for years, but I love seeing my son (now 12) light up when holding the little ducklings! Also I remember him skipping singing “Follow the yellow brick road, follow the yellow brick road, Follow, follow, follow, follow, follow the yellow-brick road” as we did the Yellow Brick Road showbag!

    My favourite show memory would have to be the first time I went on a scary ride. My parents never let me on scary rides but when I was about 9 my Auntie took me to the show and let me ride the Matterhorn. I have never been so terrified in my life!! It took a while before I was game to try another scary ride but now I love them! my 5 mins of terror on a Ride that would be considered soft now days set me up for a life as a adrenaline junkie! Bungee jumping, sky diving….what next? Perhaps some of the new scary rides in this years show if I can win tickets. Thanks for the chance guys 🙂

    Loved going to the show with my parents and siblings growing up. Best memory was the first time on the double ranger when dads keys fell out of his pocket and i was able to move out of harness and pick them up
    Look forward to taking my family there and starting our own tradition

    Still an amazing time had at the show as always

    The first time we took our little one, her face was my favourite thing! Can’t wait to show our youngest the show and see her precious face when we play on the side shows and watch the kids corner 🙂

    I remember going on the big slide with my Dad (I was too little to go on the Mad Mouse). And of course the fireworks, I loved the fireworks, I remember being transfixed looking upwards at the amazing display. xx

    My favourite show memory is my Papa taking me for the first time as a kid in 1992. I was so excited, I went on the Ferris wheel, got show bags and really felt like a little princess! We even bought my baby brother a showbag and dressed him in the crazy wig when I got home.

    Always loved the build up, getting the showbag guide, writting the list then we’d have to wait till the end of the day before we were allowed to buy them. But the best bit was going through them while watching the fireworks. Now I get to enjoy all this again with my own children

    My favourite memory was the first year we went to the show when I was 6 (up until this point my parents had always told me the Royal Adelaide Show was in New Zealand but it miraculously, came to Adelaide when I was 6) and my father won me a giant blue bear on the can throw in side show alley. I still have that bear. xx

    My fondest memory was finding a fairy pig (a toy pig with a skirt and wings), I was about 7 years old at the time.. I’m now 32 and I still have him! Yes it’s a him 🙂

    I have fond memories of the show as I would go every year for my birthday. I loved doing the Yellow Brick Road, holding the baby chicks, hot cinnamon donuts watching the fireworks, Showing our dog and having everyone in the dog pavilion sing happy birthday to me. Now t’s about watching my kids have just as much fun as I did doing the Yellow Brick Road.

    Mu Mum was a nurse who worked night shifts. My Dad used to take us to the show while Mum slept and then she’d meet us there in the afternoon to watch the fireworks. I always remember the pig racing and my Dad coming home with random gadgets. The one we still giggle about was the time he was sucked into buying an amazing knife sharpener. My Dad was a butcher so knew how to sharpen knives properly already. I don’t think it was ever used!

    Going to the show was one of the only times we got to stay up late as a kid. Being able to sit on the grass at the show grounds and watch the excitement on the arena and then finish it with the fireworks was always a highlight of our year. Would love to do the same for our kids now we live back in Adelaide.

    My birthday is always during the show and for as long as I can remember it’s been the way we celebrate it. I love it and wouldn’t have it any other way. So much to see and do.

    Being exhausted at the end of a long enjoyable but very wet day, standing at the entrance to one of the halls, and a security guard brought me a crate to sit on. I’ve never been more grateful to someone in my life!

    Going to the show, makes for such a fun day!
    As a kid I love watching the cows moo, the chicks cluck and the horses neigh.
    Another favourite is the woodchopping,
    But on a day at the show, there is no time for stopping,
    with so much to see and do,
    and lots of yummy food to chew.
    Now I can’t wait to take my daughter for her first time,
    I hope to make it as exciting as mine,
    and I will definitely endeavour,
    to make wonderful memories that she will remember forever!

    I have just moved to SA with my partner and son from Tassie and in the past my son has loved the animals. This would be our first “big city” show and I am looking forward to seeing my 2yos face in the animal nursery and on some of the smaller rides.

    My 12 year son keeps asking me, can we go, can we go? I have to say, winning a free ticket would really help with the expense of the show. We try to keep the spending down by visiting all the free things. It’s great to see the show advertising these freebies. They are fun and certainly help the family budget. Thanks Mum Central for helping families. 🙂

    My 2 young Children love the show as its a world of excitement where they can soak up the atmosphere and escape the troubled times that they endured in the early years of their lives, the show has become a new family adventure for myself and them where they can be like every other child and visit the displays, animals and most importantly the showbag hall and the fireworks.
