Win a double pass to the EKKA

The Road Ahead is giving readers the chance to win a double pass for two adults to this year’s Ekka.

The countdown is on to Queensland’s largest annual event, the Royal Queensland Show, better known as the Ekka.

Held at the Brisbane Showgrounds from 10-19 August, the Ekka showcases the best of the Sunshine State and attracts visitors, vendors and entertainment from across Australia.

Sideshow Alley remains a favourite with kids and adults alike, with more than 100 rides and 380 different types of showbags. If food is more up your alley, you can’t go wrong with some traditional Ekka favourites including the famous strawberry sundae, Dagwood dog and fairy floss.

Beyond the farm life and livestock are garden expos, food tasting stations, fashion parades, firework displays and live music.
