Royal Easter Show

The Sydney Royal Easter Show is an institution. Last year I made my first (and thus far only) visit. It was a fun day. I ate Deep Fried Cheesecake- amongst other delights! 

Although I don't eat this stuff


There are all sorts of rides.

Unusual insights.


 And then all the fun of the fair.

I'd say to eat the deep fried cheesecake after riding the rides. LOL

Trish said...

What fun! We have deep fried chocolate bars at our fairs . . . I'm sure cheese cake will be next.

Oh, wow, these make me want to go to a fair....now!

Love the colorful costumes, wigs, boots, etc. I can almost feel the rides!

Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

I don't go on those rides anymore, but I agree, save the cheesecake for later. I still like the fairs, though we mostly go to the hometown fair and that's all.

The cotton candy picture is great -- the colors and the way you framed it make a really striking image.

Love the colors! I used to love the fair when I was a teen! I can almost smell the cotton candy!

Oh...just the thought of deep-fried cheesecake, especially when mentally paired with spinning roller coasters, makes me feel ill...but maybe it's just too early in the morning! Looks like you had fun. :)

Fairs are so much fun! They bring out the kid in everyone.

What fun after being cooped up all winter! Fair day is just the best! Fun and junk food! What a great combination!

We have a fair here every fall...it's a little crazy though. Fried cheesecake :p but my youngest daughter and I are crazy about cotton candy! :)

Irene said...

Looks like a deliciously fun time.

Leslie said...

I'm beginning to believe you can deep fry almost anything and people will eat it! The fun part of a fair is the people watching. :)

At our state fair here in Ohio, we deep fry everything, but I don't usually try it. They have deep fried Twinkies, oreos, even butter. Ick. Great fair photos. Here's Mine

I need a colourful wig like that! The only ride I like is the merry-go-round, the rest, well, let's just say I give them a wide berth.

Lisa said...

That looks like so much fun! And the fried cheesecake sounds pretty good - I bet it was gooey!

Here's my snapshot.

I bet this was a fun time. Love how colorful everything is.

They seem to make all sorts of deep fried things at carnivals around Texas. Though Deep Fried Cheesecake is new to me.....

I had to laugh at the man with the pink hat - too cute! I haven't tried deep fried cheesecake, but I've had it frozen/dipped in chocolate on a stick, and it rocked that way!

Hannah said...

I would happily eat deep-friend cheesecake topped with fairy floss :)

Does "Hold on to hope" apply to the Ferris Wheel? Hope not!

Wow these are all so fun and colorful! I especially like the one of the girl with the crazy colored hair.
Thanks for stopping by my blog last Saturday.
