Bags of fun
Can you believe that over one million showbags have already been sold at this year’s Show?
It’s no surprise really, with the amount of bags on offer this year – a record 342.
Kids this year have a huge range of showbags to choose from. Family favourites such as Freddo and Nestle make an appearance, as well as many newcomers, such as Monster High, The Smurfs Bag and Oreo. The Junior MasterChef bag, deriving from the popular show, has been the most popular so far.
For those watching their purse strings, this year there are more than 130 showbags on sale for 10 bucks or less.
While the Show is an opportunity for the country to showcase its livestock and produce, showbags and rides are the some of the most iconic features, right up there with the District Exhibits and the Dairy Farmer’s Nursery.
Did you know that showbags were introduced in the early 1900s? Starting off as sample bags so the public could try something for free, they have evolved to become the goodie bags that we have come to know and love.
So if you want to bag a bag of fun, there’s no better place than the Show.
