Horses will be back on the Red Hill Showgrounds arena on Easter Saturday, March 26 as a major feature of the iconic 88th Red Hill Show.

The return of the majestic Clydesdale and striking Gypsy Cob has been warmly welcomed by the Red Hill Show Committee. Horses have not been allowed at the Red Hill Showgrounds since 2001.

Newly appointed Show Executive Officer, Bec Davis, a Red Hill local, is working alongside a motivated and dedicated planning the program for one of the State’s most popular agricultural shows and she believes the 2016 Show is shaping up to be a one of the best in years. Bec’s advice is to start planting your radishes, pruning the roses and grooming the alpacas. Entries are open now across a wide range from animals, art, craft, cooking and photography to homemade cheese and homemade wine. “And there is plenty to get the kids involved this Easter,” she said. “Parking is free so once you have your admission ticket there will be many things that are free to see and do – the pavilions will be filled with art, craft, cooking, flowers, fruit and vegetables and the livestock competitions will let you get up close to the animals,” she said. “Children can have their faces painted, enjoy a pony ride, milk a cow and more. The family can watch cook demos from Dani Venn, Masterchef All Star, enjoy the breathtaking Big Air School perform highflying tricks on BMX Bikes, or watch the open judging of the fruit cake, homemade cheese and much, much more. The woodchop is always sensational and the hot chainsaw races have become a crowd favourite.”

Tubby the Robot will be back; watch in awe as the Stiltwalker moves among the crowd. The team from Black Snake Productions will be speaking about the plight of Australia’s disappearing wildlife, while at the same time children and adults will have the opportunity to handle and learn more about each creature. There will be a petting farm and the Futura Kelpies will be showing off their skills on the main arena. “It will be great to just slowly meander around the Showgrounds and experience the colour and diversity of the stallholders too. And be sure not to miss the Grand Parade at 2.45pm,” she said.

The Red Hill Show, open from 8.30am to 5pm, is always great value for money – Admission: Family ticket (2 adults, 3 children 6-18 years) $50; Adults $15; Children 6 to 18 years $10 (5 years and under free); Students and Pensioners $10. Please note: cash only at gates, and there is no ATM at the grounds.
