Vanessa Maglaya: The Townsville Show!

The annual Townsville show is dedicated to all of the people in the community, anyone can enjoy this event. During the Townsville show they have a variety of rides to choose from, from death defying thrill rides to just a simple round wheel as long as you are not afraid of heights! The show is open for a full weekend starting in the morning and lasting until late at night. There is even a public holiday on the Monday of the show weekend to promote attendance! This allows for the majority of the community to be able to attend. This event is also held during school holidays so there is no excuse not to go with a few friends! 

The Townsville community values the importance of family and friends, which is one of the reasons for organising an event like this. This kind of activity allows me to experience a fair/ carnival atmosphere, which helped me get closer to my friends sharing such a unique experience. People of all ages can enjoy this event, not just kids. Going to the show is definitely more fun and enjoyable if you bring your friends or family with you.

IMG_0054It is my third time to experience the Townsville show, every year I look forward to it. I like social activities like this because it brings me closer to the community. In this way, I can get to know my new found home better as well as the people living here. My experience attending the show is always fulfilling and I am already excited for it next year!
