Wynnum Spring Parade 2012

Update October 11th 2012
This event has been cancelled.

The days are getting warmer, flowers are in bloom, and blue sky days have become the norm. Spring has sprung in Brisbane, and for a certain geographical region, that means one thing.

The Spring Parade has been an iconic yearly tradition for those living in the Wynnum Manly district for years. It's best described (lovingly, of course) as the poor man's Ekka rides, parades, trade shows, and games, all set against a backdrop of the calm blue waters at Darling Point.


This year, the show will run from 12 14 October. Sadly, there won't be a parade this year, but there's still a huge selection of entertainment on offer at George Clayton Park on the Wynnum Esplanade. Local bands and musicians provide free live music, food purveyors offer dagwood dogs and other deep fried delights, local businesses will showcase their wares, and the usual slightly-too-expensive rides and sideshow games are there to keep the kids happy. On Friday and Saturday night, there will be fireworks displays at 8.30pm.

The Wynnum Spring Festival Association is still accepting applications for stall holders and entertainers, so if you would like to get involved, you can fill out an application form here. There are also a few events still to be announced, so keep an eye on their website for full details.
