Elderly visitors to the Claremont Showgrounds indulged their inner child with clown games, carnival-style live entertainment and an animal farm.

They also showed off paintings, quilts and crafty creations that will make up the Perth Royal Show Aged Care Facilities display.

Royal Agricultural Society (RAS) WA president Rob Wilson said the event acknowledged and awarded the display entrants for their hard work.

‘It is an opportunity to bring the Perth Royal Show to the aged care facilities and for the RAS to create bridges in the community,’ he said.
