What’s on this Weekend in Brisbane

Several cool festivals start this weekend in Brisbane. We all are going to have lots of fun, food, music and great time.

Don’t miss out  EKKA, Queensland’s largest annual event. It starts on Friday (today) and lasts for 10 full days with a public holiday on Wednesday (NO SCHOOL 😉). It is an agricultural  showcase with a chance to see sheeps, cows, dog shows and plenty of local food from local farmers.  More information here.

This Saturday you can visit two big festivals. One of them – Korean Festival on King George square with an all-day events which include delicious Korean food, live music and performances, K-pop dance, taekwondo and much more. The best part that the entry is FREE!!! So, invite you friends and enjoy multicultural Brisbane.

Enjoy your Weekend and see you all on Monday!
