A Fabulous Family Fun Day

Mt Carmel Community Fete in Full Swing

On Sunday the second of August Norfolk Street at Coorparoo will come alive with the sounds of fete-filled-fun spilling out from one of the southside's biggest and most popular fairs, Mt Carmel Community Fete.

Fetes are always so much fun for the whole family. They're where happy childhood memories are made. I still remember being so excited at my primary school fete to have a go on the one ride and check out the awesome bargain stalls and yummy food.

Mt Carmel Community Fete is like the fete of my childhood on steroids. Last year they had– count them – nine rides, and this year's likely to match that figure. You'll also find those delicious homemade treats you expect to see, like jams and preserves and real home baked cakes on sale.

The Greek Food Stall is BACK!

Of course there'll be sample bags, auctions, games and raffles galore too. There'll be plenty of delicious food on offer, with the welcome return of the fete's famous Greek food stall. The fete's press release beams, "On top of all this, we have over 30 stalls and activities for all the family including a fresh flower stall, creepy hut, fairy floss, art show, tombola, lob-a-choc, sample bags, face painting, pony rides and animal petting farm just to name a few."

Tell your mate who can't go anywhere without wanting a drink that there will be a bar on site but not to overdo it, because nobody wants to see him have an accident on The Super Sizzler ride. The kids can make their own personalised badges at the badges stall while readers of all ages are likely to find something they'll like at the book stall.

Can you believe there will also be designer vintage clothing for all ages on sale too? When I said Mt Carmel Community Fete was one of the southside's biggest I wasn't kidding. The list of stalls, activities and events goes on and on.

So kids, start saving your allowance (and by kids I mean single childless grown-ups like me who really love all this kid stuff… oh and families too I guess, but no cutting in front of me in line for the Creepy Hut because that place has my name all over it).
