A marathon of FREE movies will start in B Shed on Victoria Quay from this Friday January 10.

Fremantle Ports is offering great family movies which start at 7pm, and there is free popcorn and icecream as well!

And to make it even better, they offer free beanbags to the first 50 visitors, so be aware that doors open at 6pm, if you want to grab one of those.

More movies coming up, so I’ll keep you in the loop every week about what’s on.

It is going to be a perfect Sunday for parents, grandparents or family members and friends to take the children to the Fremantle CBD and go on a hunt to find the ten dinosaurs placed all over the inner city.

They move and make noise, and they are pretty impressive and a bit scary, so great school holiday entertainment for kids.

There are maps available from the Visitor Centre at Kings Square!

Of course the Freo Farmers Market is also on at Fremantle College from 8am till midday, and the free courtyard music session is on at the Fremantle Arts Centre from 2-4pm.

Kids have something special to look forward to at the start of the new year with huge moving dinosaurs around the Fremantle CBD

I discovered five of them early this morning, and am aware there is also one at Clancy’s in Princess May Park. There are a total of seven, I believe, so go hunting for them kids!

PS: Ian Kerr made me aware there is actually a map with the locations of the dinosaurs, so here it is.

Wishing my Fremantle family-YOU!- a very relaxing and beautiful Christmas.

We live in a wonderful city with a wonderful community that has a very bright future.

Thank you all for your friendship and support.

The photo is of the Christkindlesmarkt in Nuremberg, Germany, which I used to photograph every year for 13 years, when I worked for the newspapers there. A young woman from the community is chosen as the Christmas Child and there is an official opening of the very romantic market every year.

Yummy little Nuremberg Bratwurst and delicious mulled wine, but it’s bloody cold of course. ;>) It is well worth a visit!

Happy Christmas!

Fremantle will become a hunting ground for children to find big dinosaurs during the school holidays from January 1 next year.

From 1 January until 2 February there will be ten dinosaurs around the city, including the Fremantle Markets, Fremantle Prison and Fishing Boat Harbour.

The animatronic dinosaurs, which move and roar, include the fearsome Tyrannosaurus Rex and everyone’s favourite herbivore Triceratops.

The dinosaur trail is one of many fun things to see and do in Fremantle during the school holidays, together with school holiday favourites like the Spare Parts Puppet Theatre, the Shipwrecks and Maritime Museum, the Roundhouse and the many kids’ activities at the Fremantle Arts Cent

To help find all the dinosaurs around Fremantle simply download the trail map or collect a map from participating attractions including Fremantle Visitor Centre, Fremantle Library, Fremantle Markets, Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour, Fremantle Prison and Clancy’s Fish Pub Fremantle.

There will be also special dinosaur-themed kids activities taking place at the WA Shipwrecks Museum, Kidogo Arthouse, Toyworld and Fremantle Library.

While on the dinosaur trail, don’t forget to snap a selfie for the chance to win one of the fabulous weekly prizes or the Ultimate Kids Birthday Party.

To enter just find a dinosaur in Fremantle, take a selfie and post it on Instagram using the #dinosinfreo hashtag.

There will be a weekly draw with some great prizes including vouchers from Fremantle Prison, Little Creatures, Fremantle Markets, Cicerello’s, Twin Fin, Kailis Fishmarket Café and Tourist Wheel Fremantle.

The major prize, to be drawn on 3 February, is the ultimate dinosaur-themed birthday party for up to 20 kids at Clancy’s Fish Pub, including one static dinosaur, birthday party food and a dinosaur-themed cake.

I don’t know who the mother and baby are, but it is my favourite photo of the ones I took at the Carols by Candlelight in Fremantle this evening, and the pic looks even better in Black&White.

LOTS OF PHOTOS OF FREO’S CAROLS EVENT

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

A lot of people turned up for the Fremantle Carols by Candlelight, and no doubt that was due to the Fremantle Doctor seabreeze arriving quite early and turning the very hot day into a very pleasant evening.

It is community events like this one that makes me go all warm and fuzzy about the city I live in. I just LOVE FREO!

I took a lot of photos, so please share the link on your social media, so people might see themselves in one or some of the shots.

COME ON DOWN TO FREO’S COOL CAROLS!

Posted in children, christmas, city of fremantle, Uncategorized by freoview on December 15, 2019

 

The sea breeze has been cooling down the port city for over an hour, so the temperature is dropping steadily and it will be a nice balmy evening at Fremantle Oval for the Carols by Candelight, so COME ON DOWN!

Bring the kids, the grandparents, family, friends and neighbours and enjoy our Freo community. Out of towners very welcome, of course, so looking forward to seeing a lot of people from Cockburn, East Freo, Melville and beyond.

It is a FREE event and starts at 6.30 till 8pm. Gates open at 5. Bring a blanket to sit on the grass.

See you there and smile when you see this old shooter pointing the camera at you. ; >)

It was already hot when I walked to Chalkys cafe at 7am this morning, but if the Fremantle Doctor breeze is as cooling as it was late yesterday afternoon the Carols by Candlelight at Fremantle Oval this evening should be nice and balmy for the whole family.

It runs from 6.30 till 8pm and gates open at 5pm.

There will be food trucks, etc. so get out of the hot house later today!
