Brisbane Bullets saddle up for the Ekkanites show

The Ekka’s almost here and that means strawberry ice-creams, sideshow alley, show bags and the Brisbane Bullets.

The Club is excited to announce that the Bullets are the official Entertainment Partners of the EkkaNites show.

As part of the partnership the Brisbane Bullets will be providing one of three hosts for the EkkaNites show.

The Ekka is Brisbane, along with the Brisbane Bullets.

The show that brings the bush to the city aligns with the club’s core values – Respect Inspire and Family

Brisbane Bullets small forward and local boy Tom Fullarton says “I have fond memories of the Ekka from when I was a kid, going with my friends and family. As a young fella I really enjoyed going on all the rides, seeing the animals and coming home with some show bags.

The Ekka is one of the highlights for the Brisbane Bullets every year, and we look forward to meeting our fans over six days, with the highlight being on People’s Day (Wednesday August 16th) where most of our players and the assistant coaches will be.

You can find us under the RACQ banner surrounded by our other partners Sirromet and Hit105, we can’t wait to see you there.
