Easter Show 2013

K and I decided to head to the Easter Show on Easter Monday since neither of us had been in about 4 years.

Our first stop was World Bazaar and after seeing what the highest chilli rating we could handle was, we were on our way with everyone else and their prams to see the animals.
FYI - the chilli was rating 10 and left our mouths on fire for the next half hour.

This little one was pretty keen on the food we had to offer. $1 for a cup of food and an hour of entertainment feeding the animals was a definite highlight.
Not all food at the show is unhealthy...even if it is covered in butter.

A lot of people complain about how expensive the show is which might be true if you have children and have to buy 10 showbags. $37 for an adult (that includes transport) to me is not too much considering how much there is to see in the way of animals and shows.

I did end up buying some wine and lollies too, but I am pretty sure a trip to the show is not complete without some form of sugar.

We skipped on the rides as we didn't even make it to that part of the show before 6pm and by then we were both ready to call it a day and head home to bed. We did however, manage to fit in an hour or two of woodchop viewing and I loved it. I don't think I've ever seen it before. Definitely one of the highlights!

Did you make it to the show this year?

    1. Definitely a good subject to take photos of. I was a bit half-assed in my efforts, but I am happy with the snaps I got anyway.
