Forget flying pigs, I kicked off my 2018 Sydney Royal Easter Show watching woodchips fly! I usually start my Show experience with a bit of cattle judging, but unfortunately, I was there over the changeover period. I was lucky enough to witness the Woodchop relay final, which was interesting.
Next on my list was Psycho Sideshow, one of my favourite things about the Show. Psycho Sideshow is a celebration of uniqueness, and the passion of the performers definitely is catching. From sword swallowing to contortions, this attraction is not for the faint-hearted but it is a great experience to feel an unique energy.
This year’s theme was “The Greatest Easter Show Spectacular” and boy, wasn’t that true. I love circus, magic and acrobatics, so I think this year’s Easter Show was the best I’ve ever experienced, so I believe that the organisers had pulled it off perfectly.
I love to eat, especially international food. I had the BEST Butter Chicken, it was seriously delicious and I enjoyed every mouthful. Later, I felt hot so I ate my first gelato, chocolate of course, and oh my, I thought I’d died and gone to Heaven.
The beauty of an event of this scale is that it is so diverse, there’s something to please everyone. Shoppers can shop, thrill seekers can ride, kids can run wild and adults have an excuse to be kids again, hey I bought a flower crown, and I’m 27.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the sponsors, organisers, vendors and entertainers for another great event. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the Royal Agricultural Society, in particular, our President, Mr Robert Ryan and our Chief Executive, Mr Brock Gilmour. I am so proud to be a member of the Royal Agricultural Society and I’m eagerly looking forward to next year’s Sydney Royal Easter Show!
