Question: What do alpacas + toffee apples + screaming children have in common? The Royal Adelaide Show, of course! Named as the ‘people’s event’ of the year, there’s something for everyone, such as entertainment and bands, rides and side-shows, food and wine tastings, exhibitions and displays, parades, animals, competitions, and more!
This year marks the 175th Anniversary of the Royal Agricultural and Horticultural Society of SA Inc., and for the first time ever, the show will run across 10 days – 2 weeks worth of fairy floss, rollercoasters, goodie-bags! The dog and horse parades will return this year, as will the ever-pleasing firework display- promised to be bigger and better than ever before.
Now, for the two most important aspects of the show: the show-bags, and the rides. Whether you’re a closet-lover, or completely shameless like us, this years show-bags brings the absolute works! Reaching an all-time high of 390 different bags to choose from, there’s no doubt that you’ll be leaving with at least five around your arm. This year the Royal Show brings two new rides to the table: Airmaxx 360, and Freak Out, along with the return of Extreme Down on the Farm Tractor Ride, as well as the old bust-ya-gut and shit-ya-pants rides like the Hangover, Mega Drop, and Big Dipper.
All ages from young and old can find days worth of entertainment at the Royal Adelaide Show this year. There’s a reason why it’s famous nation-wide, head on down to see it for yourself!
