The Sydney Royal Easter Show

Most Australians don't celebrate Halloween but they sure do make up for it at Easter. The shops do it up, the kids talk about it at school, they make hats and Easter cards, schools close for two weeks and they have the Sydney Royal Easter Show. Everyone asked if we were going to The Show - a combination of farm animals, fruit and veggie displays, carnival rides, rodeo, fireworks and live entertainment. It sounded a bit too familiar and as expected it was much like the CNE with a little Calgary Stampede thrown in. Heidi and Dave weren't too impressed but the kids enjoyed it - especially the "Show Bags" – a tradition we’re not familiar with!
