An absolutely gorgeous day in Southbank today, just the right type of weather for mingling at festivals. The French Festival was very packed with an amazing number of people - I am sure the organisers and the stall holders would have been extremely happy.
We had to walk through the arbours to get to the festival, something I can never tire of. The stunning bougainvillea is out in full bloom and against the background of the clear blue sky - well you can see for yourself. Love to know how many photos have been taken here!
Here are a few pics as we strolled, or rather pushed our way through the crowds.
This lovely fellow was posing as a French Doctor from the 1800's. He had the instruments on the table and a sign up to say that he would help with piles and fallen women..what can I say!
For overseas readers, you can see the Brisbane River in the background.
There was plenty of entertainment.
There was a lovely atmosphere here today, fine food, fine wine and other french goodies to buy. People signing up to rent french houses while on holidays there...it was hugely popular and I would definately go again.
