We even ventured into the bird pavilion. Hubby was looking at me funny, until he pipes up and says "I can't believe you are even in here". (you know, the feather thing) Anyway to show how brave I was, I started walking down one long, looong, alley with chickens to the left and right of me, just inches away, with all their feathers, and, and.... Nope, couldnt do it. Needless to say Hubby laughed at me.
So we then found great seats at the arena and parked ourselves there for the next four freaking hours. Four FREEZING hours. I mean, seriously FREEZING. I was an icicle. In my current unhealthy condition, not fun. I really didn't want to go in the first place, but our son had been looking forward to it for weeks and he had been so good that week. The things we parents do. Even if it half kills us. So I sat there, shivering, eating my bag of Fairy Floss. Hubby tried taking it off me at one stage..Clutching it to me protectively...I growled through chattering teeth...
"It's MY BAG OF SUGAR!" A feet in itself I tell you.

And the demolition Derby parade
Then dirt karts..
Then I went inside for a bit to thaw out, missing the antique speedway cars.
Came back out to watch KAOS extreme motorbike stunt thingy. (A crew from Crusty Demons) Which was so cool. I'd never seen a stunt show like that before.
Then another bloody camel race,
Then a hypnotist
Then some old dude singing songs (another trip inside to thaw)
Then the fireworks. WOW! They were spectacular. Especially the finale, so big and loud and just glorious in the crisp clear (freezing) night sky. When I exclaimed "Holy Crap!" I couldn't even hear myself. May have been on a sugar high after consuming half a bag of floss.
Last was the demolition Derby, again, Id' never seen one so it too was great to watch, and funny.
