For the wise man, everyday is a festival - Plutarch









We started a new tradition last year. Lured by the mention of snow, we headed off to the then named  BBR festival. This year, without any questions, the kids piled in the car to have lunch at the Bastille Festival Sydney. The kids have no interest in French history but they do like food. This year they spanned the globe (in a rather confusing addition of South American, Italian, Spanish and German cuisine).



It was lovely to stroll around the stalls, choosing what to eat (and some goodies to take home as new staples for the pantry).

Lamenting the stunning outdoor cinema view, I wished I'd organised a night out to enjoy the festivities. In my diary for next year, hopefully.

Waddling home after too much cream and cheese, I thought to myself contentedly, sometimes this city makes it so easy to love life.








Do you head out to festivals in the city?

  3. Looks like lots of fun. I don't do so well with crowds any more, though. Another of many indications that I'm growing older...

  5. This looks like it was a fun day! I bet the food was fantastic! We go to some festivals. They are not really traditions though.

  7. This looks like it would have been a good one. We often meant to go to things like these when we lived in Sydney, but the getting in & out always seemed so hard. I often wish that we made the effort more. #TeamLovinLife

  8. Oh a Bastille Festival would very much tempt me! Yours looks like it would have been good! Admittedly, having worked in the city most of my adult life, I'm not generally drawn to go in there on weekends BUT I don't work there anymore so that feeling is fading. I do go in to Southbank quite a bit and if there was a festival in the city that looked tempting I'd be quite happy to grab and girlfriend and head on in! :-) #TeamLovinLife

  9. I love that you go to stuff. When I first moved to the Fraser Coast I made an effort to go to almost everything that was on. I had a local FB page and a local blog. I've ditched the first but am slack with the second, but having them made me feel like I HAD to go and try things out which I think was good. I feel less-guilty now if I don't support things. (I'm conscious of the fact a lot of people here complain about there being nothing to do but they don't go to festivals / events that ARE on!) #teamlovinlife

  10. Yes we do venture out to festivals on the Gold Coast. There seems to be one on every other weekend these days. We recently had a BBQ Festival in the park along the beach near where we live. It was actually a BBQ cook-off and some of the dishes they presented were amazing. #TeamLovinLife

  13. It's been a long time since I've ventured to a festival in the city, but I do enjoy our local regional shindigs. I miss living in Sydney for this type of event #TeamLovinLife

  14. Hello Lydia: I'm #21 on the Love Life link. I'm in Toronto, Canada. It's summer time here and this year being Canada's 150, there are many special events in the city/ country. I've been going to a new music festival weekly, plus farmers' markets. It's crazily fabulous!

  15. i do love festivals but i can't take crowds so it is always a bit of a dilemma - do i go or do i not? we went to one recently which was great if a bit crowded. so fascinating watching the lovely young things wandering around.

  16. You seriously find the quirkiest things. I really wish I was your next door neighbour so I could just follow you around. #teamlovinlife
