The Adelaide Festival of Arts is here again. Performing and visual art everywhere. In every nook and cranny, wherever there is a little space something is going on. Of course if the festival is here then so is The Fringe where the weird and the wonderful come from all over the globe to fill our little city and show us what they can do. Adelaide is alive with the buzz of performing and visual art literally everywhere. Friday night was the opening parade of The Adelaide Fringe.
80,000 people flocked to the city on a hot and balmy evening
Julia, Zoe and I were among them
descendants of the original owners of the land sang and played didgeridoo
the reason Zoe wanted to go to the opening - the roller derby girls
she wants to join roller derby when she's old enough
she practises every Saturday and keeps skating even with blisters
is she old enough yet???
a bit scary Zoe thought
is that Marilyn???
inside a bubble
disabled people joined the parade
smiling and waving and having a great time
different performers enticing you to come to their show
yes! say it with art woo!!!
oh my, their mothers must hold their breath
that was fun!
and Zoe even got a butterfly with flashing lights
