Saturday 16th September – Get a Grip

Home

For the first time in a very long time I didn’t need to work all weekend, so I decided to go out and see some things.

Get a Grip

The first thing was a small push-bike show in New Farm Park. I wasn’t sure what it’d be like, but it turned out to be fantastic—some amazing bikes on display.

RSPCA Big Adopt Out

After the bike show I dropped past Coles to buy some chocolate soy milk, and then drove to the RSCPA Big Adopt Out at the showgrounds. It wasn’t as cute and puppy-filled as I expected so I didn’t stay long.

Scandinavian Festival

I continued on to the Scandinavian Festival in nearby Perry Park, but sadly it was like so many other festivals—mostly just the same stalls that are at all the festivals, and not much else. Fortunately it was late enough they didn’t charge me the gold coin entry fee. I didn’t stay long here either.

Brazilian Independence Day Festival

I managed to find parking in the city and walked to the Brazilian Independence Day Festival at Reddacliff Place. It was fairly small—basically a ring of people around a stage—so again, I didn’t stay long and headed to Top Sushi for a late lunch.

Sophia’s Birthday Play Day

After my sushi I drove to Kangaroo Point Cliffs—where I amazingly managed to find parking down the bottom—and took some photos of Sophia and her friends doing “all the things”—they even had a portable pole-dancing pole. I ate both rainbow cake and chocolate mud cake.
