Screen Shot 2017-10-04 at 9.25.59 AMThe IGA Perth Royal Show capped off its week with the final Dance of the Drones light show and the final fireworks spectacular.
Staged since 1834, the IGA Perth Royal Show committed 12 hours of free family entertainment every day as part of the entry price, with over $11M spent bringing the show to WA residents.
With the sun shining and patrons still lining up at 4pm to enter the IGA Perth Royal Show, the last day of the 8 Days of Value showed just how much West Australians look forward to this annual event.
Crowds have enjoyed everything around the ground, and farming & food exhibits provided children with free activities at Farm 2 Food, Discover Dirt and Petstock Animal Nursery to name just a few. Visitors to the showground enjoyed a week of everything that encompasses Farming, Agriculture and Education… all from our WA Farmers. The See, Watch, Do and Touch of all things country at your doorstep…. sheep shearing, alpacas, showjumping horses and woodchopping.
RASWA President Paul Carter spoke this week of the overwhelming amount of goodwill and generosity that has been shown to the RAS and the IGA Perth Royal Show both before and during the show. “Without the community of Western Australia doing what they do best, which is getting behind organisations like the RAS that they know serve their community and promote social harmony across our state, we would not be able to stage WA’s largest community event.”
“I am but one of the lucky people who guide our organisation, but it is you, the people of the show – our exhibitors, our volunteers, our staff and the show patrons – that make the Perth Royal Show what it is, and I thank each and everyone of you for all you do.”
“The IGA Perth Royal Show has received many positive messages from the community for this year’s show and our celebration of the farm, the farmers and the wonderful produce this state must offer. The most important aspect for me is the social harmony that our show brings at a time of difficulty and economic pain for some members of our community and we understand that following 186 years we have a responsibility to keep bringing the country to the city and celebrating the very best of the best.”, said Mr Carter.
