When you leave the FAC the seabreeze will have started to cool down the day a bit so make your way to Victoria Quay for the foodtrucks market from 4-9pm.

Freo is fun, so take advantage of it!

Hot is good and dry heat is even better, so the 38 degrees predicted for today won’t keep the lovers of the free courtyard music sessions at the Fremantle Arts Centre away.

On from 2-4pm this afternoon are The Tommyhawks with their melodic folk pop, mixed with raucous punk music. Expect catchy songs with blistering saxophone solos in the lovely setting under the trees at the FAC.

The cafe, the bar and the pizza bar are all open for the family-friendly event.

I don’t think I have ever seen more people attending a Sunday music courtyard session at the Fremantle Arts Centre than today.

Young and old turned up in their hundreds for the last concert of the year, and areĀ  still dancing the afternoon away on the hip swirling Congolese music of Soukouss Internationale. Great music! Great atmosphere!

The concert is still going till 4pm, so head out there fast! I had to leave early because hay fever won yet again. ; >(

gg-11

 

It is sooooo much nicer to go food shopping at the Fremantle Growers Green Farmers Market than going to a sterile shopping centre, and the last one of the year is on this Sunday December 23 from 8am till midday.

So get on your airconditioned bikes or in your hot cars and head to Fremantle College on Lefroy Road for all that fresh produce and yummy breakfast offers.

And from 2-4pm sit in the shade of the plane trees in the courtyard of the Fremantle Arts Centre for the free concert by The Last Fair Deal with powerhouse lead singer Ofa Fotu and listen to the great blues and soul.

It was a rather cool and cloudy early Sunday morning in Freo, but the sun is coming through right now at 9am, so get out and about and enjoy our beautiful city!

The Growers Green Farmers Market at Fremantle College on Lefroy Road is already underway and open till midday.

The FOMO Colour event by Sirona Capital at Fremantle Oval runs from 10am to 2pm and the hundreds of easels will create one very large canvas. Will it be a Guinness Book of Records entry?

The idea is for anyone-young and old- to come to the oval and paint an image, supported by local artists Anya Brock and Dave Spencer. It is a free event with entertainment and food stalls, so support it!

And from 2-4pm Emily Baker will be singing at the free courtyard music session in the Fremantle Arts Centre, where Animaze is also on with amazing animals for kids and lots to do.
