Previously at the Sydney Royal Easter Show… Maisie Morrow was announced as The Land Sydney Royal Showgirl for 2017. Maisie is a representative from Zone 5 – Oberon. She is an Agronomist and Livestock Nutritionist for Landmark, with a degree in Rural Science and is involved in the Cassilus Rural Fire Brigade, Meriwa Show Society, Meriwa Country Women’s Association, and the Scone Grasslands Society. With ambitions to get involved with farming lobby groups, Maisie will be a tremendous ambassador for agriculture and the Sydney Royal Easter Show.
The sound of thunder was roaring over Spotless Stadium and the night sky was alight with flashes of silver, gold and glittering sparkles. The rain was not a problem at all – the thunder came from the V8 Utes and the revving of motor-cross bike engines, and the sky was awash with the colours and crackles of the fireworks show. There’s a Cracker of a Cracker Show every night, the perfect way to throw confetti over the end of another fabulous day with the country folks in the city!
Coming up today at the Sydney Royal Easter Show… Snakes Alive is not just a showbag, it’s a show at the Show in the Pet Pavilion, perhaps not a Pavilion mum will want to walk into today because the Sydney Royal Rat and Mouse Show is on in there too – with around 300 entries! First introduced to the Show as a non-competitive exhibit in 2003, the Rat & Mouse Show was officially included in the Sydney Royal competitions the following year. Oh, and the Snakes Alive showbag includes killer pythons and sea stretchies
Maybe a steadying drink in the Sydney Royal Beer & Wine Bar is a good idea to help settle the nerves, open from 11am until late in The Stables. And if you are staying until late, there’s an evening harness parade tonight in Spotless Stadium, followed by the Senior Six Bar Showjumping and the Royal Rodeo Series. Find some food-on-a-stick, there’s a lot to choose from including lasagne, cheese, and chips, and settle in for dinner and a show. And don’t worry, if you’re down to your last dollar or two after a full day in the pavilions and carnivals, the Snack Shack has great meals all under $5.
