🎉🤡 The Ekka | 2017 🤡 🎉

I can smell that delicious scent of dagwood dogs and hear the sounds of roller-coasters already. Oh my god – that must mean it’s EKKA time!!! 🎈 🙌

For those of you who don’t know about the Ekka, it is a carnival that is held annually in Brisbane which celebrates Queensland’s farming culture and lifestyle. It runs across 10 days and starts THIS FRIDAY!

The easiest way to get there is by train, with special Ekka only trains departing Central & Fortitude Valley train stations every 20 minutes! 🙂

You can buy your tickets online here or at the door.
$$ Remember to take your Lexis Student Card to get a discount!! $$ 

💥💥 Be sure to hashtag #LexisAtTheEkka on Facebook & Instagram if you decide to go. We’d love to hear about your experience and see all your wonderful photos!! 💥💥

The full moon returns this evening, so keeping with tradition, the Full Moon Fire Festival is back for another night of entertainment.

Take a blanket, some snacks and enjoy the best of the West End culture. Follow their Facebook and website for updates and upcoming events.

This weekend is your last chance to see Swan Lake performed by the Queensland Ballet company! This classic masterpiece is only here until Saturday, so be quick in securing your tickets before it’s too late!! Tickets start from $60 and can be bought on the website here.

Here’s one for those of you who love a challenging challenge!! ROC (or Ridiculous Obstacle Challenge) 5k race is back for its 7th year this Saturday at the Brisbane Showgrounds. Tickets can still be purchased online, or a very limited amount can be purchased at the door.  This year’s ROC race will see the infamous Wrecking Balls, the Sweeper, the brand new Leap of Faith attraction, and an epic finish line slide down a 4 story tall water slide called The Hippo! Spectators can watch on for free from the sidelines, so why not make it a fun-filled day with your mates? 🙂 Check out the official website for FAQ’s, information and pricing.

This Sunday is Mother’s Day in Australia. Is it the same day in your country? 🙂 We know being away from home can be tough, so make sure to give your mothers a call this weekend! ❤ As it is Mother’s Day weekend, there are several events around Brisbane, including a free Movie in the Park event! Head on over to Roma Street Parklands this Sunday from 5pm to sit in on 2 free girly movies! There will be food trucks serving all the food, so all you need to bring is a blanket, some pillows and yourselves!

Hands up if you’re a 90’s baby!! 🙋 🙋 There will be a 90’s Music Video Party this Saturday night from 7pm at the New Globe Theatre in Fortitude Valley.
