G20 has officially begun last week and Brisbane is an exciting place to be! Check out all of the big things happening this weekend!
Starting on Friday night, there is a Giant Games Night right near Lexis Brisbane in King George Square. Giant scarabble, chess and Jenga all ready to play! More details here.
Feel more like a creepy Halloween experience? There are a whole lot of Halloween parties on Friday night. There’s a Hallloween River cruise, a scary hotel rooftop party, and a zombie party complete with zombie face painting! More details here.
Saturday is the day to respect the dead- Latina Fiesta style! Saturday afternoon at Southbank, there will be a brilliant Latin festival with food, music, art and of course dancing! More information here.
Thinking of getting away this weekend? Stradbroke Island is the place to be with an awesome, chilled out reggae festival called Island Vibe. Eat some Jamaican jerk chicken, deink a beer and listen to some cool reggae beats. Check out the festival here.
Hope you all enjoy the weekend and all all of these fun events! If you want to find out more about what’s on, see Weekend Notes for all of the events happening.

The big G20 summit starts in Brisbane this weekend, and Brisbane is celebrating by holding a huge number of fun events! This is not a weekend you want to spend at home- too many things to see and do!
Starting Friday night, just down the road from the school we have the Brisbane Indie Twilight Markets. People will he selling cute handmade things like baby clothes, bags, jewellery, clothes and much more. More details here.
And if you want more shopping- maybe looking for some cheap furniture for a new house? Or some fun second-hand clothes? All over Brisbane there will be hundreds of Garage Sales on Saturday with people selling cheap things they no longer need. Go to the website here to find garage sales near you!
Saturday afternoon will also feature an awesome Breakdance Jam! More than 100 breakdancers from all over Australia will be coming to Brisbane to perform on Saturday afternoon in King George Square. A brilliant free event. Details here.
Finally, if you still have energy to party on Sunday, there will be another big free event for the G20 summit- Spring Flare! Located in Riverstage in the Botanical Gardens, from what I can see the event will basically involve listening to crazy music from around the world and throwing colourful powder at each other. Sounds good to me! Details here.
Many more things on here in Brisbane- check out Weekend Notes for more. Have fun this weekend, everybody! Make the most of your days off- go do something exciting! :)
