Wow! That was the biggest crowd I have seen on Fremantle’s Monument Hill for the ANZAC Day dawn service.

It is always a very solemn event and so good to see so many young people and families getting up in the dark to pay their respect.

ANZAC DAY in Fremantle will start tomorrow with the dawn service at Monument Hill at 5.50 am. After that there is a lovely service in North Fremantle at 9am just opposite Mojos.

The ANZAC parade through the streets of Fremantle will start at 10.15am from the Esplanade, where it will also finish with a service. There is even two up!

Some cafes, like the Moore&Moore will be closed, but Chalkys and the Attic are open and so will be many others.

“Bill Renton” Two Up Ring, “Jimmy Paton” Bar, AFL Game on TV, Bouncy Castle and Face Painting for the kids and Sausage Sizzle. The Fremantle City RSL Sub Branch, the second oldest RSL Sub Branch in WA (formed in 1923) is holding an ANZAC Day Commemoration in the Park Event at Esplanade Reserve, Marine Terrace, Fremantle from 11:30am to 16:30pm on ANZAC Day the 25th April 2018.
The event will follow the Fremantle ANZAC Day Parade that will begin at 10:15am in Esplanade Reserve directly adjacent to our ANZAC Day Commemorations in the Park event, which will entail;
• The Freedom (Face Painting) Fairies (for the kids);
• A Bouncy Castle and Wacky Wagon (also for the kids);
• The “Jimmy Paton” Bar;

FREMANTLE ANZAC DAY PARADE

Posted in ANZAC DAY, fremantle, Uncategorized by freoview on April 25, 2017

A decent crowd turned out for the Fremantle Anzac Day parade this morning and I heard  there was a big crowd for the dawn service at Monument Hill, which I missed due to bad health.

The ANZA derby between the South and East Fremantle football clubs is on at Fremantle Oval at 4 pm today and the weather is perfect for it, so support the day.

RACIST FOOLS LITTER FREMANTLE

Posted in aboriginal, fremantle, multicultural, racism, Uncategorized by freoview on April 22, 2017

Just three days before ANZAC Day racist fools have plastered offensive posters around the Fremantle Bathers Beach area proclaiming  we should be proud to be white Australians.

It would do these ignorant idiots a whole lot of good if they read a bit about the history of Australia and the immense contribution people from all races, cultures and skin colours made to this country and help make it the great multicultural society we now are.

I am grateful to those people who scratched and removed some of the posters, so if you are around the area, bring something sharp to scratch this rubbish off. They are on the Esplanade and at Bathers.

ANZAC

 

ANZAC Day is this coming Tuesday April 25 so get up early and join the Dawn Service at Monument Hill at 5.50 and watch the sun rise.

From 7.30 the ANZAC Day Breakfast is on at the Esplanade so perfect for a beacon and egg roll and cuppa.

At 9 am the lovely more intimate North Fremantle ceremony is held at the war memorial opposite Mojo’s.

The big Parade starts from the Esplanade at 10.15and will wind through the CBD and Cappuccino Strip.

The Closing Ceremony will be held at 10.45 on the Esplanade.

It is important to always remember those who sacrificed their life to fight for peace and freedom.

FREMANTLE WET ANZAC DAY PARADE

Posted in ANZAC DAY, fremantle, photography by freoview on April 25, 2016

 

It was very wet during this year’s Fremantle ANZAC Day parade and that kept people at home unfortunately. But for the not so faint hearted it was a special spectacle everyone enjoyed.

FREMANTLE ANZAC DAWN SERVICE PHOTOS

Posted in ANZAC DAY, fremantle by freoview on April 25, 2016

 

It was full house at Fremantle’s Monument Hill for the ANZAC Day dawn service this morning and the rain stayed away for this very solemn event.

Great to see so many families with very young children, and teenagers, young lovers and many oldies.

I went to the North Fremantle ceremony for the first time and the rain started coming in then.

The next blog post will show photos of the pretty wet parade through town.

VERY FREO BLINCO STREET FLEA MARKET

Posted in fremantle, hospitality, markets by freoview on April 24, 2016

 

What a lovely atmosphere today at the Blinco Street Cafe FLEA MARKET in the very arty and hippy Fremantle Fibonacci Centre, and how nice to see so many people turn up to grab a bargain, listen to live music, catch up with friends and have an excellent coffee and meal at the cute little cafe.

I hope they will make this into a regular once a month event during the colder months.

If you haven’t been to the Blinco Street Cafe go and try it out. Tomorrow morning they will open at 4.30 am to cater for the people who attend the ANZAC DAY dawn service, so go and grab a cuppa on your way to Monument Hill! The cafe is only a three-minute walk away from it.

A bit of self-indulgence. I love those clouds so much that I want to repost this photo that I published in B&W yesterday.

Don’t forget the Growers Green Market in on till 12 today and the Fibonacci Centre FLEA MARKET runs at Blinco Street from 11.30.

The cute cafe is open for food and coffee, artists will have their studios open, and go have a chat with the lovely people at Spandau Yoga. And of course there will be live music!
