Event:
I'm a sucker for an old-fashioned fete. I've given this a lot of thought over the years and yet still I can't decide if it is the prospect of fresh, fluffy sponges the likes of which I could only dream of baking myself or the opportunity to rifle through boxes of books that I can buy without hesitation as they're cheap and I'm giving to a good cause so why not buy them all?

Living as I do in Bulimba, this fete fetish has to be carefully contained as both our local schools run them biannually on the same year. Of course the upside of this is that on a 'fete year' I can fill my freezer with as many cup cakes as I can shake a stick at. 2012 is going to be golden for fete loving folk judging by the amount of mothers I have seen carting box after box of goodies into the school. I'm predicting a bumper year for toys (largely because I know how many 'Little People' scenarios I for one am donating – farmyard? Check. Stables? Check. Schoolhouse? You bet.)
Giant Chairs

This year my children have reached an age where the rides will come into play. Primary school aged children will have their thrill seeking quota satisfied with plenty of squealing and flashing lights thrown in to ice the cake with all the rides age appropriate. Dare devils will love the rock climbing wall too.

Pre-schoolers will be kept busy with a craft stall that is going to be a trailblazer, crazy hair and body art that is mercifully quick to apply (if you're ever waited in line for face-painting you'll know why this is big news) and 'cool' for kids.

Foodies will be well catered for with the famous Devonshire Cream Teas in the Parish Hall, the classic fete barbecue plus Japanese and Antipasto for those who have a slightly more cosmopolitan palate. Relax and enjoy this great day from the shady seating in the licensed area or bring your own blanket and set up camp in the grass. With entertainment on the centre stage and prizes being awarded every hour – you won't want to miss a thing.
