Enjoying the Dagwood Dogs at this year's show | Parade

Parade couldn’t help himself, when he was at the Royal Bathurst Show on Friday, to munch into a Dagwood Dog (or Pluto Pub or corn dog).

Feeling quite peckish after spending almost an hour there enjoying the sights, Parade still felt quite hungry after one and decided to treat himself to another.

Halfway through the second one, Parade soon realised maybe one was enough but he managed to get through both.

It’s a show tradition for Parade to have at least one Dagwood Dog and he even managed to live up to that at the Sydney Royal Easter Show last month.

Whatever makes up that batter or what’s inside the hot dog, Parade would not like to know but rather keep his favourite show treat a mystery.

Only another 12 long months until Parade’s next Dagwood Dog.

Two weddings in the one, long day

Parade was a busy man on Saturday, as he had two weddings on the one day.

Luckily he wasn’t getting married at either of them.

It started off at 12pm at the Bathurst Presbyterian Church – congrats to Ross Wiencke and Amber Ruddy. 

But Parade was quickly in the car afterwards to drive all the way out to Cowra’s Japanese Gardens to witness the wedding of Sean Dixon and Emily Harris 3pm – congrats to you two as well.

It was an exciting day at both weddings but one tiring drive on the way back to Bathurst on Saturday night.

Nevertheless, congrats to the two couple and all the best in their married lives together. 

Local football season kicks-off

The long wait was finally over on Sunday, as Bathurst District Football’s senior men’s and women’s competition kicked-off on Sunday.

Players of the world game have been starved of action over the past few months but they finally got back to action, playing on Police Paddock as work at Proctor Park winds closer to an end.

Want to keep up to date on the action in this year’s local competitions?
