Silver City show lights up Memorial Oval

In a surefire sign the Silver City Show was back for another year, a large line formed down Williams St on Thursday night as the gates of Memorial Oval opened ahead of the event which saw hundreds of people seeking the thrill of carnival rides, trying their hand at sideshow games, and taking wonder in the vast selection of showbags.

In a flurry of bright lights, attendees of all ages marveled in the delight of a range of rides, including the ever-popular Kamikaze and the latest addition to the Show, the Starship. The Arts Pavilion hosted all manner of prize-winning artwork, craft, baked goods, and gardens in a boot.

“It’s just a great family outing. We always enjoy coming to the Show each year with the kids and we’ve had a great time out here again this year,” one showgoer told us on Thursday night.

Another attendee said, “there’s just so much here for the kids especially to look at – they loved the dinosaur show so that was a big hit”.

The action continued Friday with everything from the night before, but with additional attractions including the Dinkum’ Dinosaurs’ ventriloquist, dancing, and animatics show, and Eljay Freestyle Entertainment’s action-packed motorcycle stunt show.
