A bit of excitement down the road today

A bit of excitement down the road.

Today is the annual Teneriffe Festival

I quote from their website “The Teneriffe Festival was conceived after Brisbane’s inner city area of Teneriffe was officially named a suburb, early in 2010.

2012 marks the third year for the Teneriffe Festival, in which we will celebrate the suburb’s history, energy, cultural diversity, commerce and beauty.”

So I set off early this morning to find a cappuccino (no shortage of opportunities around Teneriffe) and take a few photos. It’s worth a visit today. Plenty for the whole family and it goes on into the evening.  Here are a few pics I took as they were setting up.

Just checking my new “wheels” (until the owner turned up)

    Looks like it would have been a really fun day 🙂 thanks for sharing the photos, love all the bright colours in them 🙂 I’m new to your blog and have found it through Rhonda’s Down to Earth blog. I’m going to really enjoy looking through your posts, I think an allotment is a great idea, however they aren’t really the ‘done’ thing in NZ so I’m looking forward to reading about yours 🙂 Regards, Ruth xx

      Thank you for visiting Ruth. I have been following Rhonda’s “Down to Earth” for a long time and I was thrilled to see her post a link to my blog. I love your blog “Come Smell The Roses”. The sort of things you write about are just what interests me and I’m looking forward to following the happenings in your family over in NZ. I know allotments are big in the UK, over here in Australia we are getting more and more Community Gardens as folk want to grow their own food, and allotments seem to be taking off. I love the time I spend in mine.
