Bundy show kicks off

THE smell of dagwood dogs and hot chips meets you at the gate, the sound of laughing children and the screams of scared ride-goers can be heard for blocks - it's the Bundy Show back for another year.

The three-day event got off to a slow start this morning, with guests trickling through the gates, but the stall and ride holders aren't worried - they know they'll be flat out tomorrow.

Bundy mum Linda Bourke said she preferred to go to the show on the traditionally quieter Wednesday.

"I think it's better," she said.

"You get longer on the rides and you're not waiting in lines."

A hot topic on people's lips was the high cost, especially for families, but for mother of four Esther Hutchings, the price is well worth it.

"We'll spend about $500 for the day," she said.

"It is a waste of money, but the kids are having fun so it's nice to come."
