It's starting Sept 4th
Recent arrivals might fancy a day trip to see what it's all about. I liken it to a County show in the UK, although it has some things not seen at those. Livestock showing isn't as big as what I am used to but still a fair amount.
I really enjoyed the the wood chopping (yes, men really do chop wood) and some of the live acts. Show jumping was good too. As was the dog agility.
And of course the show bags! It's a thing here. Me, I thought much of it was overpriced tat but hey
Lots of kid friendly stuff and things for the grown ups too. Food and drinks can be pricy there. Am taking a lunch and drinks for us this year. Not paying $15 for a plate again this year.
Also schools close on a weekday and have a show day. Lots of pupils attend the show on their given closed day. We did this last year and will go again on the closed day this year. Check newsletters or school calendar to find when yours are off.
