You may have heard us mention in passing over the last couple of days that South Australia ranked a solid 5th on the infamous Lonely Planet Best of Travel 2017 list. It’s a big announcement, especially as we’re the only region in Australian to be bestowed the honour (the only entire State on the list in fact!). What we have in our back yard, in 2017, is apparently all ‘must see’ stuff.
So considering the tourism swell set to begin it’s appropriate that the SA Tourism Commission are set to host a massive celebration for all of us who live here, throwing a huge FREE South Australian Block Party this Friday along Peel Street, Leigh Street and Gilbert Place in the West End from 5-10pm.
Local vendors will be staying open to party, while the Casablabla balcony will be crammed with live entertainment. There will be sangria stations, extended alfresco dining, live street performance and a built in Gin Bar (YES!). And that cheeky monkey, Chef Jock Zonfrillo’s, will have his Nonna Malozzi Food Truck open. Oh, and there will be a spit roasted pig being cooked as well, somewhere.
There will also be a novelty Snapchat GeoFilter running for 24 hours to celebrate the news, which will of course go better than the woeful recent attempt from an unnamed fast food franchise…
You really don’t have an excuse – South Aussies love a good street party and the evening is promising delicious weather. BOOM!
