Even the most vocal Republicans in Brisbane will be enjoying this long weekend and there’s plenty of celebrations and festivals across the inner city (though none of them seem to be in honour of the British lady or her birthday!) Our own Queensland Week celebrations culminate with the “Big Queensland BBQ” at Roma Street Parklands on Saturday. There’s a special appearance from the singing, dancing Hi5 team so every Brisbanite under 9 years will be there! Rosalie Village has its Cheese Carnivale this Sunday with a Brazilian-themed street festival, live entertainment and 30 cheese stalls.
And New Farm’s Powerhouse art centre celebrates its reopening after renovations with live music acts, free comedy performances and an exhibition of photojournalism. A great long weekend to get out and about in our magnificent city!
And happy birthday your Majesty!
