Easter Show

Today (technically yesterday since it's past midnight) I went to the Royal Easter Show. It's a big carnival/country fair sort of event that's held every year at the Olympic park. I loved it when I was younger, and I was keen to go this year because I hadn't been in a while.


I'm not really into rides. Partly because the lines are always so long and partly because I'd be that person puking off the side of the rollercoaster.



Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh, look at those tiny fluffy baby chickens.


Bought some rocky road in the Fresh Food dome, where we also hit up our old favourite, the chilli stall. They're there every year and you can sample ones with varying grades of spiciness. I went straight in for the 10/10 and spent the next few minutes holding back tears.


My favourite carnival food ever - cheese on a stick. I don't know where else I'd be able to get this, and that's probably a good thing.


A bit of fairy floss too. I know it's just sugar but it's so damn fun to eat.


Sadly, I think I've grown out of the Easter show. I didn't even buy a showbag this year! I spent most of the day wondering what I'd found so fascinating about the show as a child. I feel really bad about having my parents take me so many times now.

It's my midsem break so I'm off for a week. I'm a bit annoyed by the timing really, I was just getting back into the swing of uni! (Obviously, I will complain about anything.) I'm going to let myself relax a bit, since I won't be getting another break for three months after this.

  14. I went this year for the first time in a long while. It was just too much, the people, the massive crowds and lines for everything. I think I'm getting old. :( I did have a great time with my friends, I wouldn't deny that I had fun either. :)

  24. OOO I went just yesterday to the shows! Unlike you....I don't think I've grown out of yet because I was right in there among the little kiddies with their animals :) Gorgeous photos as always. And you're so lucky to be on your mid-sem break right now, mine's in 2 weeks :(

  25. Ohhhhhhh those chicks are so cute! They were always my favourite part of the Royal Adelaide Show too :) We don't have a big Easter show though.
    You guys are on holidays already?! We don't have our midsemester break for another two weeks! (well, one and a half...) I hope you enjoy your break :)

  26. awesome photos! you've captured the atmosphere of the show so perfectly. I found a similar thing with theme parks - loved them as a kid, went as an 'adult' and spent most of the day watching others! there is something quite lovely about watching other people - especially children - excited and full of energy!

  27. haha i'm the same with the easter show, i was crazy about it when i was little and i'd go every year and get so excited and go through the showbag guide and circle all the ones i wanted, and now it's not really a thing, haha. i'd have too much of a guilty conscience to buy all the lolly/chocolate showbags and there's not much else there that i'd be dying to see, especially since it's so expensive now.
