The Ekka August 13, 2007Posted by Amanda in Brisbane.
We went to the Ekka for the first time in years yesterday.
I have to say I was disappointed- the animal displays were fine, the fruit displays showed their usual creativity in making giant apples out of many smaller apples, the strawberry icecreams had all the required layers.
But where was the crazy headwear? And I am not talking about the country hats- there were plenty of those. But I only saw one pair of head-boppers, and there were no KISS wigs and no glitter hair. What is it with the kids of today? Are they all too cool for their own good? There was a time when every self-respecting Brisbane child wanted a faux mullet for People’s Day.
Seriously now, we enjoyed it- we ate dagwood dogs and strawberry icecreams and got the price of admission back in energy efficient lightbulbs that were being given away. It was fun.
