BAD WEATHER CANCELS FREO CHRISTMAS CAROLS

Posted in christmas, city of fremantle, Uncategorized by freoview on December 15, 2017

 

The City of Fremantle has cancelled the Sunday Christmas Carols on South Beach due to the weather forecast of a big storm front coming through on Sunday afternoon and into Monday.

It is unlikely it can be rescheduled so unfortunately we’ll miss out this year.

Carols at South Beach

 

The City of Fremantle CAROLS ON SOUTH BEACH was a great success last year and is on again this Sunday December 17.

The entertainment starts at 7pm just as the sun goes down but food trucks will be at the beach from 5pm and there will be pop-up entertainment and fairies, and of course Santa.

Bring a picnic and blanket and chill out with the family for a lovely night of community spirit to celebrate the festive season.

The CHRISTMAS BAZAAR opened at the Fremantle  Arts Centre last night and will be on all weekend from 10am to 5pm.

While there don’t forget to visit the galleries for the delightful IN CAHOOTS Aboriginal art exhibition by artists from remote communities.

If you decide to go to the FAC tomorrow you can combine your trip and also visit the lovely George Street Festival in East Fremantle, just down the road from the FAC.

 

Gorgeous George will be open from 1-7 pm on Sunday in the street lined with flowering jacaranda trees.

Art, craft, food and other stalls and live entertainment. Don’t miss it. It’s fun!

FREO SHOWS WHAT CHRISTMAS IS ABOUT

Posted in bid, christmas, city of fremantle, Uncategorized by freoview on November 30, 2017

 

 

Not many people who enjoyed themselves tonight at the Fremantle Long Table Dinner in historic High Street would understand the logistics of making the stunning event work.

To feed 800 people is a huge challenge at any given time, but doing it on the street, from different kitchens and with many volunteers, now that is amazing!

Karl Bullers of the National Hotel, the BID team, all the volunteers, and God knows who else was involved in organising this outstanding evening, all should receive the Fremantle Citizen of the Year award. You guys are truly amazing and deserve so much gratitude from the community!!

To do all this to support St Pats and the homeless and needy people is what Christmas should be all about and you all made it a reality. Thank you so much!!

Freo leading the way yet again!

CHRISTMAS BAZAAR AT FREO ARTS CENTRE

BAZAAR Dec 1-3

 

A reminder that the Fremantle Arts Centre Christmas Bazaar will be on this weekend.

It starts tomorrow from 5-10 pm and then Saturday and Sunday from  9am to 5pm.

Local art and craft, jewellery, clothes, ceramics, glass, etc. for sale, so great Christmas presents to be found there.

On Sunday is also the George Street Festival in East Fremantle, just down the road from the FAC, so easy to combine the two events.

Only one more month and we have Christmas but there are only a few signs in Fremantle that the festive season has started.

Street decorations will be put up next week and BID has started a Christmas window display competition for our retailers, so make sure to go for a stroll and check them out.

Good news is that we will be able to buy real Christmas Trees at Kings Square every Friday in December from noon to 4 pm, or you can order them via Alex Marshall on Facebook.

There will be Christmas Carols on South Beach again, which was very popular last year.

Support our local traders. They are doing it tough, so forget the sterile and boring shopping centres and shop local here in Freo!

VERY FREO SHOPPING BAG!

Posted in christmas, city of fremantle, shopping, Uncategorized by freoview on October 29, 2017

 

Freo bag

 

It’s Christmas in two months, so Fremantle is the place to go for unique and quirky presents.

I noticed this Freo bag in the window of the Compendium Design Shop in High Street west yesterday, so check out that cute little shop and others along one of the world’s most beautiful shopping streets.

It beats plastic shopping bags by an environment-caring country mile
