Bringing side show fun to your doorstep
SPRINGFIELD'S version of the Royal Brisbane Show will kick off this Friday.
THE popular three-day Springfield Mini Show Day event is hosted by the Riverview Community Centre and will once again run from Friday to Sunday at the Robelle Domain Parklands.
Event organiser Emily Taege said last year's inaugural event was a huge hit with locals, with this year predicted to be even bigger.
"This is the second year the show will run and people who attend this year can look forward to more entertainment, stalls and awesome $2 rides,” Miss Taege said.
"More than 1000 people came to last year's event and this year we're expecting over 1000 per day.”
The idea for the Springfield Mini Show Day came about after one of the ladies who worked at Riverview Community Centre wanted to take her daughter to the Ekka, but due to the price of entry could not afford to go.
Riverview Community Centre decided to therefore partner with Big Show Queensland last year to put on the Springfield Mini Show Day, to provide families an enjoyable day out without breaking the bank.
"We plan to continue to hold the Springfield Mini Show Day throughout the years and believe it is only going to get bigger and better,” Ms Taege said.
"We've had nothing but amazing responses to the show and in particular had people comment on how cheap the ride prices are and how fantastic the staff are.”
The Springfield Mini Show Day will run from Friday August 11 through to Sunday August 13 at the Pyramid Lawn, Robelle Domain Parklands, Springfield.
