Brisbane French Festival

Bastille Day, the Tour de France and this weekend's French Festival in Brisbane...it's hard not to think about France today!

We enjoyed another beautiful sunny winter's day here on Sunday at the Brisbane French Festival.

Lots of market stalls, French food, dressed-up folks and activities for the kids.

  1. I feel his pain. That would be my reaction to 'no more churros' too!
    Apart from depriving small people of buckets of sugar and fat it looks like you had a great time, I loved the balloon skirt and the bulldog,,,,,,,....and the churros!

  3. This looks like so much fun! My oldest's birthday is today -- if he ever wants to go with a Bastille Day theme for his birthday party (as opposed to sports, sports or sports) I am totally coming back to these pictures for inspiration! Love!!

  4. Looks more French than France! Although there was plenty of action in Sarlat last night! And fireworks to welcome the cruise ship into Bordeaux the previous night! Bonjour and wish you were here!

  5. Okay, I want to know what the coloured discs are too! Some of those look, err, distinctly non French, but fun all the same!

  6. I've just been told by Shay what the coloured discs are, necklaces, so no need to ask you too.
    Churros, that would be the look on my face too, if I was told no more churro. I love churros. Not very French though are they.

  7. That's how I respond to "no more churros" too. It looks like a fun day.

  8. What a joyous post, so full of color. You are a great photographer indeed, being able to catch the essence of the day in few pictures.
    I can not believe that the little bambino is now such a little man!

  9. Looks like fun (apart from the no more churros moment).

    I'm beginning to think that life in Brisbane is just one long festival ;)
