A Day at the Royal

In Sydney every April we hold the Royal Easter Show. It's a chance for the Country to come to the City with prize-winning animals, displays of agricultural produce, horse and dog events, woodchopping and of course the showbags and rides. It's a big deal and there would be very few Sydneysiders who have not been to "The Show" many times.

I suppose I should have expected that Toronto - being a lot like Sydney - would also have it's own version of The Show, and indeed it does. It's called the Royal Agricultural Winter Show, and is very much like the Sydney Royal Easter Show except it's all held indoors - which is a good thing, as it could be a bit chilly otherwise!

We visited the Toronto Royal Agricultural Winter Show last weekend with the Smiths. It's a pretty big event, with lots of cows, horses, pigs and dogs on display, as well as all the usual expo-style stands selling everything from saddles to bull semen! We wandered around for a few hours, checking everything out, having a bite to eat and even though we had a rather long wait in order to get a good seat, we also watched the IAMS Superdog show.

It was pretty similar to the Sydney Show, with a few notable exceptions - there were no showbags, rides or woodchopping. Because of the long wait for the dog show we missed out on the horses, which was a shame, but it was still a fun way to spend an afternoon.
