So it’s the first weekend from the middle of 2013. Congratulations everyone! You’ve made it this far.
As with the usual Brisbane weather, it also appears that winter has past it’s peak and is already beginning to warm up. Excellent weather around the low 20s and lots of sunshine/minimal clouds are a blessing for the plenthora of events and sales and activities this weekend.
Brisbane, do your best! Make sure you get out and enjoy this wonderful time of the year 🙂
Saturday 6th July:
Garage sale at BoxVintage, next door to The End. Along Vulture Street in the heart of West End. Head in early to grab the best vintage finds!
There’s lots of activities for the whole family. There’s a fashion parade, live music, historical displays (Teneriffe used to be a giant wool station!), market stalls promoting local businesses and even a farmer’s market! Nearby restaurants and bars will have specials on the day as well!
The famous Pork, Fork & Cork laneway party from Alfred & Constance is making a return. Also on the day there will be a pop-up cantina from Chilliwow, the new Mexican-themed bar in Fortitude Valley which replaced Barsoma. Both pop-ups will be offering drinks and food galore. Both will be having subsequent after parties at their original venues too! A&C are offering free buses to A&C too!
Aside from the food and drinks, there’ll be heaps of activities for children with a KidsWorld set up including barnyard animals (eeeee!) and even a piglet race (eeeeeeeeeeeee!!!). If you don’t find me pigging out myself, you’ll find me dying from cuteness overload.
Cookbook and magazine swap is happening from 2pm at Shady Palms Cafe. Get some new inspiration for dinner! 427 Logan Road, Stones Corner.
Sunday 7th July:
Suitcase Rummage is on again! Feel free to haggle for a good price or bonus items on the cheap, especially if you’re buying a few items from a seller. They will have to haul it all back at the end of the day!
