Port movies

 

School holidays are almost over, but there is still plenty to do for the children, such as the great Victoria Quay Movie Marathon by Fremantle Ports.

It is on every night this week and the movies start at 7pm, doors open at 6pm.

The movies are FREE and so are the bean bags for the first 50 arrivals, plus there is free popcorn and icecream.

It is in B Shed where the Rottnest Island ferry terminal is and there is heaps of parking at Victoria Quay.

Have fun!

It is going to be a perfect Sunday for parents, grandparents or family members and friends to take the children to the Fremantle CBD and go on a hunt to find the ten dinosaurs placed all over the inner city.

They move and make noise, and they are pretty impressive and a bit scary, so great school holiday entertainment for kids.

There are maps available from the Visitor Centre at Kings Square!

Of course the Freo Farmers Market is also on at Fremantle College from 8am till midday, and the free courtyard music session is on at the Fremantle Arts Centre from 2-4pm.

FREMANTLE ALFRESCO NEEDS MORE CONSIDERATION

Here comes my first ‘whinge’ of the new decade. Fremantle cafe, bar and restaurant operators and retailers need to be more considerate when putting tables and chairs, or A-frames, on the footpaths and realise they are sometimes creating an inconvenience.

The MONK on the Cappuccino Strip has put two new high bar benches out for patrons, but they are too close to the steps of the venue, and the gap is so narrow that it is a nuisance for people with prams, and near impossible to get through for people in wheelchairs and gophers, or mothers with a double pram.

A -frames are also often thoughtlessly put on the pavement and that makes it difficult for vision-impaired people to navigate their way through Fremantle.

A little consideration goes a long way!

Kids have something special to look forward to at the start of the new year with huge moving dinosaurs around the Fremantle CBD

I discovered five of them early this morning, and am aware there is also one at Clancy’s in Princess May Park. There are a total of seven, I believe, so go hunting for them kids!

PS: Ian Kerr made me aware there is actually a map with the locations of the dinosaurs, so here it is.

Fremantle will become a hunting ground for children to find big dinosaurs during the school holidays from January 1 next year.

From 1 January until 2 February there will be ten dinosaurs around the city, including the Fremantle Markets, Fremantle Prison and Fishing Boat Harbour.

The animatronic dinosaurs, which move and roar, include the fearsome Tyrannosaurus Rex and everyone’s favourite herbivore Triceratops.

The dinosaur trail is one of many fun things to see and do in Fremantle during the school holidays, together with school holiday favourites like the Spare Parts Puppet Theatre, the Shipwrecks and Maritime Museum, the Roundhouse and the many kids’ activities at the Fremantle Arts Cent

To help find all the dinosaurs around Fremantle simply download the trail map or collect a map from participating attractions including Fremantle Visitor Centre, Fremantle Library, Fremantle Markets, Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour, Fremantle Prison and Clancy’s Fish Pub Fremantle.

There will be also special dinosaur-themed kids activities taking place at the WA Shipwrecks Museum, Kidogo Arthouse, Toyworld and Fremantle Library.

While on the dinosaur trail, don’t forget to snap a selfie for the chance to win one of the fabulous weekly prizes or the Ultimate Kids Birthday Party.

To enter just find a dinosaur in Fremantle, take a selfie and post it on Instagram using the #dinosinfreo hashtag.

There will be a weekly draw with some great prizes including vouchers from Fremantle Prison, Little Creatures, Fremantle Markets, Cicerello’s, Twin Fin, Kailis Fishmarket Café and Tourist Wheel Fremantle.

The major prize, to be drawn on 3 February, is the ultimate dinosaur-themed birthday party for up to 20 kids at Clancy’s Fish Pub, including one static dinosaur, birthday party food and a dinosaur-themed cake.

I don’t know who the mother and baby are, but it is my favourite photo of the ones I took at the Carols by Candlelight in Fremantle this evening, and the pic looks even better in Black&White.

LOTS OF PHOTOS OF FREO’S CAROLS EVENT

A lot of people turned up for the Fremantle Carols by Candlelight, and no doubt that was due to the Fremantle Doctor seabreeze arriving quite early and turning the very hot day into a very pleasant evening.

It is community events like this one that makes me go all warm and fuzzy about the city I live in. I just LOVE FREO!

I took a lot of photos, so please share the link on your social media, so people might see themselves in one or some of the shots.
