Everyone loves a street party, and the City of Charles Sturt has plenty of practice at organising them. As part of South Australia's History Festival 2018 the council have organised a free 50th anniversary birthday party for the Hindmarsh Historical Society, operators of the Hindmarsh Museum.

Hindmarsh is an inner suburb of Adelaide with a history almost as old as the state. Located next to Bowden and Brompton, the history of the suburbs is closely intertwined. All are now benefiting from urban renewal in the area, and the major rail and road infrastructure works around Park Terrace.

The 50th anniversary street party is being held in conjunction with the Hindmarsh Museum open day, adjacent to Coopers Hindmarsh Soccer stadium and near the Entertainment Centre. There are plenty of reasons to visit the Hindmarsh Museum normally, with its carefully restored historical vehicles, local treasures and and amazing early photograph collection. Find out more about Hindmarsh Museum here.

On Sunday May 20 the museum will come alive for the free street party, with a program of displays, entertainment and fun things to do throughout the afternoon. Come early for the sausage sizzle (donation requested) with coffee and other snacks available. Once you have had lunch you can browse the extensive display of restored historical vehicles. They include an original Hindmarsh Volunteer Fire Brigade appliance, horse drawn butcher's carts and a baker's cart. Watch Legion of Frontiesmen cadets from Fort Glanville cadets drill to a marching band, or stay for some children's storytelling in the heritage listed chapel (1.30pm) and other fun for kids.

Relax in Hindmarsh Place outside the heritage listed building that once was a fire station and enjoy free live entertainment. Performances by local musicians are as listed:
The Adelaide City Jazzman (1.05pm)
The Bikie Busker (1.50pm)
Festival Statesmen (2.35pm)
The Baker Suite (3.25pm)

Dont miss the chance to look at all of the amazing exhibits inside the Hindmarsh Museum. There is a wealth of South Australian history on display, and I love poring over the old photos.
