Adelaide’s in party-mode!

The Fringe has now officially started. It’ll run from February 24 [yesterday] to March 10.

What is Adelaide Fringe, you ask?

Adelaide Fringe is renowned for fresh ideas, risk, imagination, spontaneity and fun. It is the largest arts event in Australia and only rivalled by the Edinburgh Fringe on a worldwide scale.

It runs side by side with the Adelaide Festival of Arts every two years and has been around since 1960.

On a personal note, I find the experience last night a little overwhelming since I’ve never seen Adelaide so full of people and so alive at 10 p.m.! The entire length of Rundle Street was closed down and a street-party atmosphere was in place. The city was so awake with activities since there were shows, rides, and concerts being held at Rymill Park. And I didn’t particularly enjoy the parade, however, there were some interesting bits and participants in it. I did like walking around the park, though.

And of course, all the party-hungry folk were out for blood. Booze and dancing were in full swing. I’m sure all the pub and resto owners are making big bucks. Hmmm. I wonder where the “Doomsday” Bus was last night. It’s a bus I saw one time when I was out on Rundle Street with a friend, it was sending out a message on loud speakers, mind you, basically condemning the people for drinking and partying in that area. It’s an effort to evangelise, I reckon. Great job. Hahaha.

Anyway, it’s an event that’s preferably attended with people who wants to have a good time, better yet, friends who’d want to PAARTTYY! Hahaha. They still have other events lined up for the next few days. Anyone interested to come with me? =)
