The Grand Parade is a spectacular event at the Sydney Royal Easter Show. It is a traditional highlight loved by young and old alike. Established as an event in 1907, the Grand Parade is a well choreographed display of the prize winning animals at the show, including livestock, horses, riders and horse drawn vehicles. The competitors take great pride in leading and riding their animals in the Grand Parade and for them it is also a highlight of the Easter Show.
The Grand Parade is a favourite event and in 2017 the show celebrates 100 years of the Grand Parade, which will be highlighted during the event. The parade will not only be a celebration of this years fine competitors, but also a tribute to the exhibitors of the past.
