SOUTH FREO FATHER CHRISTMAS ACCIDENT

Father Chrismas

 

I am not sure if Father Christmas had too many heavy Christmas presents that made him topple over, or a few too many drinks when he fell into this hedge in South Fremantle.

BEAUTIFUL BOXING DAY

There is something invigorating for me to watch the buzz at the B Shed Rottnest Island ferry terminal in Fremantle port early in the morning.

People are excited and the cafe is pumping out hundreds of cups of good coffee, while commercial ships enter or leave the port.

It was kind off reassuring to see that I am not the only one who has aged in the last eight years, but that my former Sri Lankan lover Indira’s stunningly beautiful face now also has a few wrinkles. She was on her way to Rotto.

(We oldies keep telling everyone it’s the youthful attitude that counts, not the years we have been battling to survive on this planet. ; >)

The cafes and shops are open, the beaches clean and the weather a pleasant 27 degrees, so enjoy Freo today and support our local traders!!

….. and for the couch potatoes and sports fanatics there is the Boxing Day cricket test match and the Sydney to Hobart sailing spectacle on TV. I love those traditions.

The last Fremantle GROWERS GREEN FARMERS MARKET of the year is on from 8am till midday tomorrow-Sunday- at Annie Street, Beaconsfield.

Great fresh produce but also the chance to buy some late Christmas presents and pendants and rings for the ladies at the stall of the  Glen Cowans underwater photography gallery.

If you can’t make it to the market in the morning the Cowans’ gallery is next to the Roundhouse and open till 4pm.

It’s not Christmas yet, so why not have a pre celebration with Blue Shaddy at Clancys Fish Pub in Fremantle tonight from 8 pm.

You will have all of Sunday and Christmas Eve to recover before getting serious about the three wise men and Joseph and Maria and the little bub.

VISIT THE FREO CHRISTMAS MARKET

Posted in christmas, city of fremantle, hospitality, Uncategorized by freoview on December 20, 2017

 

 

There is not a lot going on in Fremantle during the festive season, so not much to write about.

A reminder that the Christmas Market at the Moore&Moore cafe is still on today and tomorrow from 10 am to 4 pm.

There is a children’s playground in the courtyard and they serve good food and coffee, and Henry Street has been re-opened to traffic after the inappropriate closure a few days ago for work that was done on one of the footpaths.

M&M Xmas 19-21

The lovely Moore&Moore cafe in the Henry Street arts centre in Fremantle will be holding a Christmas Market from tomorrow Tuesday December 19 until Thursday.

25 small businesses have signed up to be part of the market, so make sure to check it out.

The M&M is a great place for families as it has a playground in the safe back courtyard away from the street.

Father Christmas

 

Hey kids, take your parents, sisters, brothers, friends and grandparents to the Fremantle High Street mall this weekend and have a FREE photo taken with Father Christmas.

There is help on hand to take a photo for you with your own camera or mobile phone.

Santa is in the High Street Mall shop from 11.30am to 3.30 pm on Saturday and Sunday, and all next week in the Woolstores shopping centre.

This is another initiative by Fremantle BID.

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 ON SOUTH BEACH SUNDAY

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.
