Hey gang! 🙂
The weekend is almost upon us again! There is a fair bit to see and do this weekend in Brisbane – with markets and festivals being a popular choice. If this sounds like you, then keep on reading!
This week is National Recycling Week and Brisbane will host many special activities and events this weekend. One of which is the Twilight Market in King George Square, which will run this Friday night from 4-9pm. During this time, the event will feature a fashion parade showcasing designs created from recyclable materials, as well as other local talents displaying their creations within their unique market stalls. Entry to the venue is free, but be sure to take some spending money with you, so you can grab yourself a bargain (while helping the environment) – hooray! 🙂 For more information visit the Brisbane City Council website.
This Saturday afternoon, Torrington and Boundary Streets in Spring Hill will come to life with the ever-so-popular Spring Hill Alive festival. This festival focuses on the importance of local community bonding, cultural awareness and celebrating the Spring time in Brisbane! There will be a variety of arts and crafts stalls showcasing the best of the best in local talent and delights. There will also be live music, beautiful flower displays, street dining and fun activities for all ages to enjoy. So come on down to the Spring Hill Alive festival this Saturday from 10am until 5pm – entry is free. For more information visit the official website.
Have plans during the day but you’re struggling to find something to do at night? Then maybe this will interest you. The Diwali Festival (or Festival of Lights) is back again, this time in the Chinatown Mall. Festivities begin at 5pm and run into the night. There will be live music and Bollywood dancers, Henna tattoo artists, arts and foods markets and firecracker display around 7pm. Head on over to the Chinatown Mall in Fortitude Valley this Saturday night to be apart of one of the most colourful and interactive Indian celebrations in Brisbane! Entry is free! 🙂 To see the complete timetable of what’s happening at the Diwali Festival, visit the website here.
For those of you who weren’t out partying all Saturday night, and prefer to start their Sunday with some fresh air, then be sure to head on over to the Valley Markets. The Valley Markets are open every weekend – 9am-4pm, and is a great way to support the Brisbane locals. With Christmas just around the corner, you can get all your Christmas present shopping done in one go (and for cheap), so everybody wins! 😀 To read more about the history of the Valley Markets or other general information visit their website.
The weather forecast for this weekend in Brisbane is shaping up to be pretty miserable again, with scattered storms predicted for Saturday and rain on Sunday. But don’t let these predictions get in the way of your fun! (besides, they are never right)! Keep track of any storm/rain activities through the BOM website. But as always, be safe, plan ahead, but most of all have FUN! 🙂
