Joondalup Festival at twilight..



Yesterday evening found us wandering around this year's Joondalup Festival, it was hectic! Joondalup City is roughly 26 km north of Perth and just ten minutes on the freeway from where I live. When Aimee was looking to buy her first property Joondalup was on the list. A festival is not a festival without the flying swings, I remember loving those swings, these days I'm happy just to listen to the screams :) now the carousel below is another matter, I quite like the idea of choosing a mount and having a ride!


Pop up coffee and Gelato bar!


The Beatles were there.. they were fab!


The real reason we were there was the same as the thousands of children and parents below excitedly waiting for....! Show you tomorrow :) Hope you're having a groovy weekend (man that just aged me), take care and stay safe...

  6. Those swings were quite fun when I was a boy. That old Chevrolet pick up truck looks factory new! Love it. About a 1941 I'd guess.

  8. Choosing a..........oh, forget it. The Chevy looks great. A few were still around when I was a kid, but they were well used, shall I say. The Beatles certainly have the look right.

  12. But no left handed bass player. The show's producers probably aren't old enough to know.

  33. Wow!! Truly a beauty. I just love to see flying swings in festivals. I am going to attend NYC events and I wish I can experience such large swings there too. I would say with swings a festival is really a fun.
