Bendigo Show 2009 / by Joel Bramley

Just got back from this years show, but I never go into the showgounds!
After 9pm entry is free and the gates are opened, went there tonight with my wife and daughter to go see the fireworks that start at 9, but we never got in. Resulting in the following views of the fireworks (taken on my phone)










Just before 9 there was a fight near the main gates (didn't see it). This caused a lockout where no-one could get in, only out. However shortly after, anyone with a stamp for today was allowed back in, this is a very strange lockout!! So thanks to some idiot teenages and the poor handling of this situation by both the Bendigo Agricultural Show Society and the Security people, a lot of families with kids who also came in to see the fireworks were treated to the same view as above.
