I enjoy writing about Adelaide and its many attractions. If you think Adelaide is boring,
the problem is not with Adelaide.

Making Adelaide's boulevard busier
A Magnificent Moreton Bay Fig Tree on North Terrace
North Terrace had seldom been used as an event venue until the spectacularly successful Adelaide Night Market changed that.
As the weather cools the Night Market has wound back to fortnightly but those imaginative elves at Splash Adelaide have developed an alternative way to keep us busy about Adelaide.
If you're wondering what is on in Adelaide on Friday and Saturday evenings, then look no further.
Nights on North Terrace is a new activity hosted by Adelaide's iconic institutions on North Terrace. Think the State Library, the SA Museum, the Migration Museum, and the Old Adelaide Gaol (well, it's not that far from North Terrace).
The focus initially is on family fun and educational activities, although more events will be announced later on the event website.
Please note that numbers are limited and bookings are essential for many events.

One of the treasures of the City of Adelaide, Colonel William Light's original plan for the City is on display at the Migration Museum.
In a series of three interactive sessions, families will have the opportunity to explore Colonel Light's plan in detail, and through interaction with the Museum's collections, see how the fabric of the city has been built by migrants from around the globe.
Each session will start with a focus on a particular site on the City map – the Chinese paifang, complete with guardian lions, the Adelaide City Mosque with its minarets, and the modest German settlers' cottages in North Adelaide - and will include a hands-on opportunity to make and taste some treats from traditional cuisine.
Now if there's something I can't resist, it's an event with free food!
When: 26th April, 10th May & 14th June. 4.30-6pm.
Where: Migration Museum, 82 Kintore Ave, Adelaide
Bookings are essential. Call Alison on 8203 9891 or email email@example.com.
Thanks for the great promotion! In relation to the Migration Museum events, we've had to swap the date of the April session from 12th to the 26th. Is there any chance you could update the dates in your post?
With thanks, Allison
