Parklea Pakenham Show 2019

On a glorious sunny Saturday, great crowds of people showed up at the PB Ronald Reserve for the 2019 Parklea Pakenham Show.

The day was full of fun and surprises. Even better, Parklea’s continued sponsorship of this event meant this exciting day, jam-packed with shows and activities, was free for the whole family.

Children were especially delighted by some unusual unexpected visitors. The Australian Reptile Show presented by Reptile Encounters was a real highlight for the kids. This live interactive show was an exciting way to introduce children to a variety of reptiles, native mammals and birds, such as the dragon lizard, sugar glider possum and red-tailed black cockatoo. “Kids these days are a lot less likely to encounter reptiles or native animals. We are all about reconnecting people with nature,” said Josh Cox of Reptile Encounters.

“We bring out a handful of animals and talk about fun quirky facts to do with each one. Depending on how big the audience is, we try to make it as interactive as possible,” he explained. “Kids are blown away. Sometimes they are fearful of the animals, but for kids, it’s like going down a skateboard ramp. It’s a natural adrenaline high. They love it,” he said.

Visitors were also treated to live musical performances by the Police Band and the Cardinia Civic Concert Band. There was a rare meet and greet with Paw Patrol. Showgoers were encouraged to enter the gumboot throwing and paper plane competitions. There was something for everyone.

“We value the importance and tradition of the Pakenham Show. Parklea’s sponsorship helps organisers offer free entry and entertainment for all ages,” said Parklea Sales and Marketing Manager Jarod Mills. There could be no doubt that a good time was had by all.
