Hold on to your hats Brisbane, because the Spiegeltent has blown into town bringing with it one of the craziest, most awe-inspiring shows we’ve ever had the pleasure of being shocked by….

Over the next week Brisbane will turn a bright shade of emerald green in the lead up to the St Patrick’s Day. This celebration of all things Irish continues to grow in popularity and it’s not hard to see why: loads of live music, free flowing beer and a great excuse to dress up like a loon.

Last weekend the family and I went to the Spring Flare festival of colours, one of the many events being staged over the next few weeks as part of the G20 Cultural Events Program. Actually to tell the truth we almost didn’t go.
If you’ve ready my About page, then you’ll know that this blog was born out of FOMO – also known as Fear of Missing Out. It can apply to anything really, but for me (and many others) it tends to mean fear of missing out on one of the many amazing spectacles that make up Brisbane’s event calendar.
