IN THE eyes of a sugar-crazed child the Wagga Show is all about the rides.
There are plenty of choices from the ferris wheel and bumper cars to the stomach-dropping rides and the sideshow alley's laughing clowns.
Tumbarumba's Tallam Delch was pumping with adrenaline when he stepped off The Claw at this year's show.
Tallam, who is 14 years old, said the ride must tick three boxes to get his attention.
"It needs to go upside down, have great speed and of course get the adrenaline going," he said.
"The Claw was a bit sketchy because the harness moves around and that made everyone scream and got the adrenaline going."
Wagga's Seth Clark and his brother Ash are thrill seekers too. The duo's mission has been to spend most of the day hanging upside down.
"Going upside down, it's not something you get to do everyday so that's what today's all about," Seth said.
In other news:
"The Shockwave is where we're going. It spins around and upside down."
However some show-goers prefer the slower pace of show bag lane and the sideshow alley. This was the case for 6-year-old Emma Woodland, who was ecstatic with her Spirit themed show bag.
"It's my favourite movie and it has a big bag and a dream catcher. After this I want to see the pig races," she said.
Her sisters Alesea Woodland, who is 8 years old, and Nylah, 4, were on a different page. While they were thrilled with show bag lane, their sights were set on the bumper cars.
"I am going to bump into everyone," Nylah said.
Over in the pavilions, the Wagga Cake Decorators' Guild members were showing off their craft to on-lookers.
Husband-and-wife duo Helen and Ken Robinson had been decorating cakes for 38 years and during that time entering their creations at the Wagga Show.
"I'm just passionate about decorating, but Ken loves the competition side of it and enters cakes all over," Mrs Robinson said.
Mr Robinson started decorating cakes while he was a dairy farm. After he retired, the couple opened a cake decorating shop in Wagga.
"We closed the shop a few years ago so we could enjoy our craft at our own pace," he said.
