The layout of the festival was setup with great consideration.
One end of the entrance, Cleveland Street, was catered more towards the adults. The Sydney's Ride Festival was setup with bike valets, as well as an area of artworks being exhibited. The Cleveland Street entrance was also the closest entrance to the main music stage and the bars.
Both entrances had volunteers accepting donations to support the Surry Hills Neighbourhood Centre. Aside from cash donations, visitors can contribute to the Surry Hills Centre via painting. Artworks were displayed along the fence of the entrance, allowing visitors to paint by numbers.
Walking along the footpath of the park, I felt a cool breeze when walking past a large white tent. The Chai tent or temple had a very cooling and refreshing interior. The vibrant interior decorations, fluorescent curtains, cushioned seating made the tent more inviting. Inside the tent, there was a small cafeteria offering chai flavoured drinks and snack bites.
The main grass field was the highlight of the festival because it was where all the food kiosks and stalls offering a variety of food cuisines and beverages.
There was Spanish cuisine with paellas and sangria, Himalayan food, Mexican wraps, crepes and desserts like cake pops. However the most popular cuisine goes to Brazilian BBQ, with people ordering foot long hot dogs.
As for drinks, I became a frequent at the cane juice kiosk, trying out all four flavours on offer. The drink was ideal for such a warm, sunny day, great way to freshen up.
In regards to kids entertainment, there was a small playground with monkey bars, slides and climbing nets. Just opposite the playground was a pop up stage by Lolo the Gypsy Caravan with performances by kids and adults.
Magic shows and kids talent performances filled the stage. A table for face painting was nearby the stage.
