I took him out. In this festival state that we live in, it's Fringe Festival time. The Adelaide Fringe Festival is the second largest arts festival in the world - second only to Edinburgh. It's bloody brilliant. It started in the 1960's and is now sees over one million audience members over three short weeks. Amazing.
The lovely husband and I have managed to get to a whole host of events every single Fringe since 2000. We both adore stand up comedy and live music. Back then we enjoyed emerging comedians such as Ross Noble and Adam Hills before they got famous, for $10 in a bizarre range of venues ranging from the bunker of a pub, to a tent, to an old cimema.
It is a festival of so much fun and atmosphere and music and performance. I love it.
|#marchphotoaday - day 6 - 5pm in the Garden of Unearthly Delights|
A band and some stand up comedy and all of the twinking fairy lights in a convivial street party atmosphere. Coffee and gelato in Rundle Street.
The jostle and laughter and anticipation of a show.
The circus like atmosphere of the open air venues.
The potential of a great new comedic find.
The buzz of a crowd.
The roar of applause and the excited chatter as crowds exit and move onto the next event, the next sight and sound.
This is, for me, Adelaide, this is home, at it's beautiful exciting best.
