Wild Weather On Day One Of The Royal Show

Don't be put off by today's showers and possible thunderstorm if you'd planned to go to the Royal Adelaide Show.

The gates have just swung open at Wayville and will open at 9am every day.

The event will run for the next 10 days and is expected to attract 500,000 people.

General Manager Michelle Hocking says despite a probable slow start because of the weather forecast, there's plenty of things to do indoors. 

"There's lots of pavillions with the Goyder Pavillion and Jubilee where all of our entertainment and exhibitions are" she says.


Other indoor activities include Taste SA, the Grains Pavillion, Farm Expo and the sheds where all the animals are kept so it will be easy to stay dry!

There's also plenty for young and old at night with a spectacular program including "car soccer, the risky Royal Adelaide Mo, Raptor vs T-Rex Monster Trucks and the usual favourites like V8 Ute Challenge, Team Izuzu D-Max and the Showtime FMX".


Not to mention the carnival, fairy-floss stands, hot donuts, pig racing, showbags and fireworks.

If you're worried about parking there's plenty of ways to get there.

"There is plenty of parking in the parklands and also surrounds but for ease of parking and for ease of getting around I would always suggest catching a bus, train or tram" Michelle says.


To take advantage of cheap tickets get yours at your local IGA or Foodland, or you can buy them online through ticketek

"When you do that you can save up to 10%".
