Event:
The Oxford Terrace will be closed on Saturday for a day of celebration. You won't believe how much work has been going on behind the scenes for this 50th birthday party of the Unley Library. If I were to put a photo of every activity of this huge party, I would be running out of room.

This is not your ordinary 50th birthday party. It is a vintage fair designed for all age groups & families. How about dressing up in your vintage clothes to join in the party?

All things vintage

On the street

You will find something sending you back in time like the Tintype Traveller mobile darkroom, the vintage caravan, the vintage ambulance, vintage car display, old-fashioned games, vintage craft stalls, stationary engine display, blacksmithing demonstrations & penny farthing riders.

For the kids & young at heart, try the tea cup merry-go-round, patting animals at the Old MacDonald farm, balloon artist & face painting.

Foodies will like the Cool Cones ice cream truck & La Scala Café pizza. Have I not mentioned that there will also be roaming performers?

Go to the Unley Council website for the schedule on stage but it won't be a birthday celebration without a birthday cake. The Mayor of Unley will cut the birthday cake at 11:30am. I am wondering how big the cake will be!! The Glad All Over Band will be playing on the street throughout the day. You will love this band if classic hit music from the 60's, 70's or even 80's. That's their specialty.
