Haven’t been to the Show since I was a kid!
Neither of us has been to the Show since we were kids, so it was good to be in Darwin for the Show this year. I was very tempted to buy fairy floss just for old times sake! Anyway, I resisted, but we loved the show and looking at all the exhibits from scarecrow competition to boxing tent, plus all the handcrafts, animals and home grown produce. There was something for everyone, and everyone was having a great time.
The pig racing was something new, and very cute to see, especially when the smallest pig leapt from the tower into the pool and quickly swam over to his trainer.
The boxing tent is the last one in existence in Australia. Somehow we weren’t tempted to join in for this one.
The under 16 girls’ polo cross team from Victoria was visiting, and we watched a match against N.T. Those girls are very talented horsewomen.
We were intrigued by this Northern Territory Police Rescue Vehicle. Not sure who it is intended to rescue, it had grills on all the windows and gun ports in the sides, plus binoculars sticking up out of the roof. It looked very serious, and in matt black looked as though it was not meant to be seen after dark.
