Royal Adelaide Show
The Royal Adelaide Show is held in early September every year. It is the highlight of the agricultural and horticultural year. There are many events, and people come from all over the state, and some from inter-state to compete or spectate. The agricultural and horticultural judging classes are very well supported, as are the dog and cat classes. One of the most popular sports on show is the wood-cutting where the three main events are the "underarm", the "standing block" and "tree felling". There is great competition between the various states. For the kids, there is a huge fun fair area with many rides and lots of sideshows and other entertainments. In the main arena were the showjumping, the daily grand parade, and a motor cycle stunt team that provided great entertainment.
