Pristine weather, the smell of hot show food, and laughter filled the air immediately as community members rolled into People's Day at the Bundaberg Show.
As the BRC Bundaberg Show’s gates opened for popular People’s Day it was clear the annual event was sorely missed last year.
Whether it was the thrill of show rides, the taste of a delicious hot or sweet show food, or just the simplicity of being out and about again, you couldn’t put a dampener on the annual event.
Run off her feet at the gate, Bundaberg Show president Maree See said it was a brilliant turnout and she couldn’t ask for anything more.
“We are so relieved to be back after COVID-19 restrictions stopped the Show last year,” Maree said.
“It’s easy to see this is a much-loved community event and families are keen to get out and about, spending time with each other, again.”
Bundaberg mum Edwina Rowan shared the sentiment, saying it had been a fun day out with her son Noah as he tried his luck at one of the dozens of show competition stalls.
“It’s really just nice to be out again,” Edwina said.
“It’s been a great day, with perfect weather, so what else can you ask for.”
Reese and Ryder Aylett spent People’s Day at Bundaberg Show with their dad John Aylett, and they all agreed it had been one of the best.
“We love coming to the Show, we come every year,” Reese said.
The trio tucked into some yummy show treats before heading off to see the sights in sideshow alley.
Three-year-old Amarli Borch and her mum Kirsty Jennings found it hard to choose just one of the spectacular showbags, but both agreed it was a perfect family day out.
The crowd didn’t thin out as the afternoon wore on, because even after a fun-filled day, the anticipation for spectacular fireworks display kept them coming.
