We went to the Royal Adelaide Show on Wednesday. It’s the first time I’ve been in a long time and JJ’s first time ever. The thing that was on the top of my list to do was to see Jenny Gillies wearable blooms fashion parade.
We got there 20 minutes before it was due to start and it was standing room only. JJ deserted me straight away to go and get a better spot at the front. It was really warm in the Goyder Pavilion and I hoped I could hack it. Hack it I did, and JJ didn’t even get bored which is saying something.
Unfortunately nobody was allowed to photograph the parade which is a pity as it would be even better publicity for them, but there were displays of the art around the place so I was able to snap that.
The parade was quite entertaining. I was expecting more of a walk down the runway to music kind of thing, but there was more to it than that. Think of bees and flowers and the attraction there.
The costumes were brilliant and many many hours of work must have gone into them.
