Not everyone can get a few days off work to explore the whole thing at a leisurely pace and not everyone's immune system is capable of withstanding the risk that is catching the "Ekka Flu".
With People's Day weather expected to be mostly sunny with a top of 25 - or, better known as "perfect Ekka weather" - Wednesday is a great day to make your way to the show. First things first - get an early night the night before. Gates open at 9am and the fireworks don't finish until just after 8pm so you want to be well rested for your hour voyage through the Brisbane Showgrounds.
Make sure you have bought your tickets online to save a bit of money and save a bit of time at the gate when you get there. It also deposits you in an area that is a holding facility for all types of cattle, llamas and horses, so you can get a look at the animals straight away. From there hang a right towards the main arena and another right to walk anti-clockwise around it.
Thrill rides in the morning is the best way to achieve that important goal as there is less in your belly to not be in your belly. My advice, for the true thrill-seeker, is to knock over the Freestyle, XXXL and Freakout straight up then go find somewhere to sit down. The main arena is a great place for a seat and if you wander back from sideshow alley in the direction you came you can go past the CWA and grab a corned beef sandwich while you watch a few morning activities.
Once your heart has stopped racing and your adrenaline has returned to normal levels, a sedate wander through the animal enclosures is good soul food. From fish to sheep to pigs to bulls to fancy chickens the Ekka's whole thing is bringing the country to the city, so if you're a rusted on city slicker, this is a fantastic way to get up close and personal with farm animals and you get to pat heaps of them.
If you time it right you might also get to see a sheep getting shorn, which never seems to get old. There is usually a bit of literature available around here, grab hold of some for the next phase of your day. By now you should be fairly hungry and, while I subscribe to the Ekka diet of Dagwood Dogs and Strawberry Sundaes only for 10 days, you may have more diverse dietary requirements.
Around the end of the main arena under Machinery Hill you will find just about every dietary requirement in one place. Be prepared for long queues, especially on People's Day, so make use of the literature you have secured to kill time.
If you want a true foodie experience instead of hitting the fast food stands, check out the Woolworths Fresh Food pavilion.
A little-known fact about the Ekka is that there is a wine and cheese competition that runs alongside it. You can sample the cheeses and make plans for your next intimate soiree with artisan cheeses.
Generally, just outside the fresh food pavilion you can find the firefighters selling their fundraising calendar. As you walk out, make sure you buy one of them, or five to give to friends, everyone loves a fireman and your money goes to a worthy cause. Hit the Ekka Website and visit the entertainment page to see what is on for the day you are going. It could be anything from bush poetry to a violinist.
The Mumm Entertainment and Fashion Stage Near gate one on Gregory Terrace pretty much has back to back entertainment, from acrobats to fashion parades you can chill out there for a while before embarking on your next adventure.
Once the sun starts setting you want to head back to sideshow alley. Whether it is the Ferris Wheel or the Freestyler, you want to get as high up as you can to take in the view of the Ekka all lit up. Take into consideration that the line for the Ferris Wheel is long and slow-moving and you are likely to be on it for about 15 minutes.
If you are with a group have one person queuing while others go and attempt to win prizes in sideshow alley. You should have finished digesting lunch by now so it will also be safe to get back on the thrill-rides or any of the spinny ones. If you have kids and they want to go on a big person's ride the Crazy Coaster is scary enough and anyone over cms can get on it with adult supervision.
For those who don't mind having their wits scared out of them, the haunted house near the main arena at the very start of sideshow alley is utterly terrifying and mercifully short given you can make your way through at pretty much your own pace. It also tends to be a bit quieter in the show bag pavilion by this time of the day, so now is your chance to load up on showbags. The pavilion is a bit overwhelming when you first walk in and if you don't have a plan of attack it can take ages to get around.
Most people start at one side then snake their way through but I suggest walking straight up the middle and keeping an eye out as you cross corridors for anything you might like. Also most of the well-priced bags with loads of stuff in them are located in the centre stands.The Ekka is the annual agricultural show of QueenslandAustralia. It was originally called the Brisbane Exhibitionbut it is more commonly known as the "Ekka", short for "exhibition".
The Ekka is Queensland's largest annual event, which welcomes an average ofvisitors each August. The Ekka features a sideshow alleyshowbag pavilion, and nightly fireworks displays. The significance of the first exhibition held in was described by locals as the most important event since the separation of Queensland from New South Wales in In as part of the Q celebrations, the Ekka was announced as one of the Q Icons of Queensland for its role as an "event and festival".
The first show, held between 22—26 Augustattracted 17, visitors. The show was a spin-off from the famous International Exhibitions being held in Britain and worldwide dating from the Crystal Palace Exhibition of A new grandstand designed by Claude William Chambers was open for the show.
During a time when the Ekka was still young, the main purpose of the agricultural show, as its name suggests, was to show off many agricultural and industrial exhibits. It was a chance for people to show off newly invented agricultural and industrial devices such as ultra modern ploughing, sowing and harvesting artefacts. Cattle and other farm animals were also exhibited during the show, a practice that remains to this day.
The Animal Nursery, which has been running sincefeatures around baby farmyard animals for visitors to meet and greet. Since its opening, the show has only been cancelled three times,  in throughout the time of the Spanish flu pandemic, where the grounds were employed as temporary hospital wards for the sick, indue to World War IIand indue to the coronavirus pandemic . The Ekka is Brisbane's most popular event of any sort, with aroundvisitors attending the show in recent years.
The showgrounds covers an area of 22 hectares. During Ekka, the Exhibition railway line is operational with special trains some of them historic steam trains carrying passengers to the Exhibition railway station in the middle of the Brisbane Showgrounds. Attractions at the Ekka include fairground rides, a Side Show Alleyanimal parades, woodchopping competitions, agricultural displays and equestrian events.
The food includes typical fair favourites like Fairy flossPluto pupsburgers and hot chips, but it also features award-winning gourmet foods and traditional recipes from the Country Women's Association. Sideshow Alley in particular has been an integral part of the Ekka. Back in the earlier years of the show, Sideshow Alley was a place for people to witness actual sideshows, such as freaks of nature, people carrying out superhuman feats of strength and illusionists performing for delighted audiences.
Showbags are also an integral part of the Ekka experience.

Usually containing food items such as confectionery and novelty itemsshowbags are sold in the Showbag Pavilion. The contents of the showbags are tested to ensure they comply with safety standards. Competitions remain at the heart of the Ekka. Since the very first show inthe Ekka has been rewarding and recognising those dedicated to producing the best of the best.
The competitions include agricultural products such as livestock, fruit and vegetables, and skills in areas as diverse as farriery and cake decorating. The Ekka, due to its large attendance, raises a large amount of revenue. Because of the cultural significance of the Ekka, the City of Brisbane holds a Wednesday public holiday known as "People's Day". The Ekka starts on the first Friday in August, except if the first Friday is before 5 August, in which case it starts on the second Friday of August.
People's Day is then the Wednesday after the Ekka commences.He was martyred in action in the battle of Hilliduring the Indo-Pakistan War of He was posthumously awarded the Param Vir ChakraIndia's highest award for valour in the face of the enemy. His parents were Julius Ekka and Mariam Ekka. Ekka's family belonged to an Adivasi tribe. Hunting was a common sport among the Adivasis, and Ekka was interested in it from his childhood. With his experience of hunting in jungles, he was able to be a better soldier with his skilful use of ground and movements.
As he grew, Ekka developed interest for the army, and was enrolled in the Bihar Regiment  on 27 December After the 14th Battalion of the Brigade of the Guards was raised in January Ekka was transferred to that unit.
He saw action in counter-insurgency operations while in the North East. During the preparations anticipation of Indo-Pakistani War ofEkka was promoted to lance naik.
As the war broke out, 14 Guards was attached to the IV Corps. The capture of Gangasagar, located 6 kilometres 3. As the operation began, the unit placed itself south of Gangasagar, about 4 kilometres 2. The high ground around the railway station was their main defence, followed by anti-tank and anti-personnel mines. During a patrol, Pakistani troops were found moving on the railway tracks.
Soon two companies of the battalion attacked the enemy positions along the track. Lance Naik Albert Ekka was in the left forward company of a battalion of the Brigade of Guards during their attack on the enemy defences at Gangasagar on the Eastern front.
This was a well-fortified position held in strength by the enemy. The assaulting troops were subjected to intense shelling and heavy small-arms fire, but they charged onto the objective and were locked in bitter hand-to-hand combat.
With complete disregard for his personal safety, he charged the enemy bunker, bayoneted two enemy soldiers and silenced the LMG. Though seriously wounded in this encounter, he continued to fight alongside his comrades through the mile deep objective, clearing bunker after bunker with undaunted courage.Posted August 16, Wearing your Sunday best, stuffing your face full of sweets and treats or saving up for a prized showbag, the Ekka has captivated Queenslanders for almost a century and a half.
Queensland's largest annual event is in its th year, and attracts hundreds of thousands of people through its gates each year. For generations, locals and visitors have been making their way to Brisbane's showgrounds to enjoy the Ekka's agricultural displays, equestrian events, fairground rides and carnival treats. Of the photo she selected, Ms Price said: "Life was very cool, I was living in a house at Highgate Hill with a group of other people and that was three of them.
But it's also the time of year Ms Price feels closest to her father, who passed away on People's Day 30 years ago. The Ekka has been a part of Shay Keogh's family for multiple generations, a tradition passed on from her great-grandmother.
Rosslyn Winning's favourite part of the Ekka has always been the showbags, which she points out used to be free when she was a child. Now an organiser at the event, Ms McCabe said the show was an important way to educate city residents about life in rural Queensland. While Joy Neeson hasn't been to the Ekka for close to a decade, she remembered going to the show as a child.

An entire news quiz without a mention of the word "coronavirus"?
You'll have to take the test to believe it. By music and pop culture reporter Paul Donoughue. Are we all desperate to recall a simpler, more innocent, pre-pandemic time, when the future looked rosy and we stood physically close to other people?

However, the proposed rally against the anti-conversion bill was postponed. I am not quite sure of the reason. But, we have been informed that it will be held at a later date. According to sources in the RSS, the usual matters of agenda were discussed during the meeting.
Since Shah is himself a Swayam Sevak, he decided to come over for an informal chat on various issues.
As far as our agenda is concerned, our views are very clear on issues like conversion. He added that the RSS was never against any particular religion, but, conversion, as a concept, was simply not acceptable.
He also met people in the area, breaking the security cordon. In Morabadi, the speakers raised their voice against the anti-conversion bill and amendments to the land acquisition Act,saying they were ploys to divide the tribal people and take away their land.
However, Shah, during the press conference, refused to make a comment on the issue saying everybody was entitled to his opinion.
