VINTAGE BIKES AND HOT RODS

Posted in bikes, festival, fremantle, Uncategorized by freoview on May 27, 2017

 

 

Good-looking vintage bikes and hot rods are on display at the Maritime Museum as part of the Fremantle Heritage Festival.

Arthur Grady Day is always very popular and the weather is perfect so head out to Victoria Quay soon as it is only on for a few hours.

Arthur Grady was the first person to ride around Australia on a motorcycle, so hence the name of the event.

My personal favourite Fremantle festival the STREET ARTS FESTIVAL is on again over the Easter long weekend from April 13-17 all over the inner city.

It is a very international festival with artists from Hungary, Spain, United Kingdom, Belgium, Australia, Netherlands, USA, Canada, Lithuania, Sweden, New Zealand, and Japan.

The printed programs are available now from the Fremantle Library and also at the Roundhouse and you can check it out on the City of Fremantle website and festival Facebook page.

UGLY FREO ROYALE FRINGE PROMOTION

Posted in art, culture, festival, fremantle by freoview on January 21, 2017

Is this ugly fence promotion for Freo Royale really the appropriate way of advertising the great fringe festival?

Why put a well-designed promo at one end of the High Street mall but this ugly black eyesore at the other end?
