Good morning, Brisbane!
There is so much to see and do in beautiful Brisbane this weekend. Enjoy the last weekend of Spring and celebrate the return of Summer by checking out some of these events!
For some of you, this might be your first Christmas away from home – and I’m sure for most of you this will be your first Summertime Christmas! So why not bring in the festive season with your friends Brisbane-style, by watching the lighting of the Christmas Tree! This Friday night at 6:30pm, you can witness the first lighting of the tree in King George Square. The Mayor of Brisbane will be there, and even a familiar man dressed in red will be making a special appearance! There will also be lots of Christmas activities, performances and Christmas Carols to enjoy. Be sure to check out this favourite yearly event! 🙂
Now… This is what I’M excited for. The ever-so-popular POP CULTURE event Supanova is making its return to Brisbane this weekend at the RNA Showgrounds! *excited squeal* Geeks and Nerds of all ages will gather in numbers to enjoy a fun filled weekend of Cosplaying (dressing up as their favourite video game/anime/superhero characters), meeting famous people and spending lots of money on loot!
Unfortunately I won’t be dressing up this year but I encourage anyone who is interested to give it a go! 😀 The list of celebrities coming to BrisNova this weekend is out of this world cool! (Neville Longbottom from Harry Potter – yes please!!) To see the full list of appearances, click here. For more information about Supanova such as prices and event timetables, check out the official website here! See you all there! 🙂
Markets are always very popular around Christmas time, and this year’s Stones Corner markets are back again! This Sunday from 3:00pm until 8:00pm, the entire Logan Rd through to Stones Corner will be closed off from traffic and the streets will be lined with colourful market stalls, entertainment and that big guy dressed in red will be back again! 🙂 The venue is completely licensed as well, so you can enjoy a nice cold beer while doing some Christmas Shopping! To read more, visit here.
This weekend we’re expecting some storms to roll on through which should cool things down at least for a little while! So as usual plan ahead of time so you don’t get stuck outside! To keep up to date with what’s happening with the weather, be sure to visit the BOM website regularly – especially the rain radar! You can watch it here.
Have a super fun weekend, everyone! If you do decide to go to Supanova, be sure to send me (Tara) some photos of the day!! 😀
