The Royal Adelaide Show runs from September 5 to September 14 and is an action-packed event for the whole family to enjoy. It’s the stuff fond childhood memories are made of and is always fun for the young at heart. There are lots of attractions from the livestock, animal shows, produce, cookery and handicrafts to sideshow alley, the carnival rides and, of course, the nightly fireworks.
There is a Kids Carnival area for the littlies (under 7 years) and myriad thrilling rides in the main Carnival area with rides including Ali Baba, Hard Rock, Slingshot, Big Dipper, Space Roller, Hangover, Carnevil, Crazy Coaster, Fungee Bungee, Graviton, Thunderbolt and the always popular Dodgems.
2014 sees the Royal Adelaide Show’s 175 year and this is the first 10-day show that takes in two full weekends but many things will be very familiar like the smell of the cattle pavilion, the sugary tang of the fairly floss and the challenge of limiting the kids to only one showbag.
