Tourrific Prospect will return in January 2017, bracing for over 15,000+ locals and visitors ready to delight in delicious street food, twilight shopping and an abundance of colourful entertainment.
The one night only street party spanning 450m between Labrina Avenue and Staples Court – Tuesday 17th January, will see Prospect Road jam-packed with celebrations of the Prospect community’s variety, creative and cultural diversity – all coming together to set the 2017 theme ‘Our Colourful Community’.
With the Santos Tour Down Under (STDU) passing through earlier in the day, the ‘stage’ will be cleared to celebrate the vibrancy of Prospect and the overall buzz that the STDU brings each year.
Tourrific Prospect will offer something for everyone from the young to young at heart.
The main stages are back including Fenwicks (Olive Street), Little City (Kintore Avenue) and Club 5082 set to rock the Town Hall. The 2017 line-up also includes cultural shows on the new ‘performance platforms’ placed at various street locations where you’ll experience Aboriginal, Indian and African artists as well as a number of regular Tourrific Prospect performers.
Organisers are hoping that the ‘Long Table’ where guests can enjoy a feast of catering to suit all tastes will be a hit with the opportunity to catch up with friends and connect with the community.
Visitors will be spoilt for choice with local businesses and traders open until late in the evening and pop up stalls to experience and delight on South Australian and international product.
Families will find plenty to do with the always popular Kids Zone and Loopy Kids returning once again for 4-13 year olds inspired by the STDU. The FREE event, now in its 5th year and sponsored by Blackfriars Priory School will see kids ride like the wind, emulating their STDU heroes, on a new street circuit on Prospect Road adjacent to Barker Gardens – registrations are open now – www.prospect.sa.gov.au/loopykids
Prospect Mayor David O’Loughlin explains that January is a spectacular time to explore Prospect and Tourrific Prospect serves to kick start a year-long relationship with all that the local community has to offer.
“Loopy Kids, Club 5082, global food, amazing entertainment, local beer, wine tastings, dozens of stalls to check out and a genuine family atmosphere that makes it friendly for everyone – it really is a ‘Tourrific’ event!”
“This is perhaps your last best chance for a family night out before school starts up again. Enjoy the very best of summer in Prospect as we showcase everything that we love about our city and others rave about!”
