The Grand Animal Parade - EKKA 2012 - The Royal Queensland Show

Ekka - where city meets country

 

"Queensland's largest and most loved annual event where more than 400,000 people come together at the 2012 Royal Queensland Show (Ekka) in Brisbane from August 9 to 18 to see the best of Queensland with more than 10,000 animals, 23,000 competition entries, a smorgasbord of award-winning food and wine and hours of free family entertainment.

 

The first 'Royal' Show was held in 1921, when the Association was granted the prefix under warrant from His Majesty King George V.Since then, the shortened name "Ekka" has replaced "Exhibition" in the Queensland vernacular, indicating locals' affection for the Show."
