The Best of the Rest in 2015
As we head towards Christmas, the number of school and community fetes and festivals reaches fever-pitch. It's fatal to assume that you can make it to all of them before the end of the year without being organised (pun intended) so here is my guide to the best of the fetes and fairs for the rest of 2015. Please add anything I have forgotten into the comments section.


Bindoon Show
Pack the car for a great day trip to the Bindoon Show, with rides, amusements, workshops, competitions, markets and much more. This massive event will have a rodeo and firework plus displays, kids talent show and trapeze artists. A big day out and lots of fun.

Where: Bindoon Oval, Bindoon
When: Saturday 17th October
Cost: Gold coin entry, extra cost to attend Rodeo

Don't forget Angove Street Festival. It's coming up really soon - Sunday, 25 October between 10am and 5pm. Huge music program happening on the Rosemount Music Stage and Natural Wings - a trapeze duo soaring through the streets of North Perth. Check out the local talent on the City of Vincent Community Stage - you never know who what up and coming talented young star we may discover.

There's plenty to do - lots of free activities, markets, arts and crafts, the North Perth Primary School fete and food galore - heaps for the family to do.
