Good morning everyone! Hope you’ve had a nice week so far here at Lexis Brisbane, and to our new students – we hope you’re settling into your new environments. It’s a bit of a quiet weekend again this week, all but for one major event that’s going to take place in Fortitude Valley! If you love music, food and festivals, then you might want to check this out!
This weekend marks the 19th consecutive year for the Valley Street Fiesta! Proudly hosted by the Brisbane City Council, Brunswick Street and surrounding areas such as China Town will be transformed into a lively festival! The program is jam packed with fun activities suitable for all ages. Festivities will kick off tomorrow afternoon with live music starting from 3:45pm at the Main Stage in Brunswick Street. To see the full line up of live music and entertainment on the Main Stage, visit the program page here.
On Saturday, China Town Mall will come alive with it’s very own Market Feast Festival. The street will be lined with food stalls from different restaurants in the vicinity showcasing their very best food items for you to try! You’ll even get to vote on which stall you thought to be the best, and at the end of the day, the stall with the most votes will be crowned the winner of the Festival Feast. So be sure to save some room in your bellies so you can get to sample a bit of everything! (yum!!) The Feast Festival will be open from 11am and running through into the night until 10pm.
Also happening on Saturday will be a Fiesta special edition of the popular Valley Markets. Head on over the the Brunswick Street Mall between 9am and 3pm to grab yourself a bargain and check out the best of what the local Brisbane talents have to offer.

The weather is shaping up to be a little cloudy this weekend, but that doesn’t stop the sun from burning! So please be sure to wear sunscreen and appropriate covered clothes if you are out and about, to save yourself the pain that is nasty sunburn!! To keep up-to-date with what’s happening with the weather around Brisbane, visit the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) website. I often use the Rain Radar feature as well – give it a go here; (it’s also fun to watch)!
Hope you all have a lovely weekend – stay safe! 🙂
