    14/6/2016. Great show for children and adults. Side show alley expensive. Check contents of show bags before leaving stall – 4 out of 4 of ours were missing the main items as advertised. Good free parking at school with free bus transfer very generous, or $5 at show site – not bad. A good day out.
