HOME FESTIVAL ~ Saturday August 25th 2012

31 Aug

Last weekend I attended the Home Festival for the first time.

The kitchie festival, that celebrates all things about the home, was held in Raymond Park at Kangaroo Point, just behind The Pineapple Hotel.  A great festival for families and sustainability enthusiasts, the Home Festival hosts an array of free (or gold coin donation) activities for all ages in addition to some tasty organic and healthy treats.

Main Stage Home Festival The Bike Bus

We enjoyed a hunt through the suitcase rummage and Mr Moo loved the Mamas Corner with its home-made rain-makers, shakers and bubbles. The Bike Bus was a hit with most, and nearly as popular as the build your own cardboard cubby house area (which we were the masters of I might add). The live music was great! We enjoyed tunes by Sabrosa Son Sistema and Citizen John, (remember those names).

All in all, I would definitely rate the Home Festival as one of the memorable Brissy festivas I’ve been to. Its free, friendly, fun, welcoming, colourful, and eco friendly. A festival on the grow I suspect so keep an eye out for it in 2013 to enjoy the moderate crowd levels while it lasts.
