Maylands Street Festival 2016, Sunday 1st May 2016, Whatley Crescent and Eighth Avenue, Maylands, Noon to 7.00pm.
A Flying Visit … Decided to put up a brief review of the Maylands Street Festival 2016. We had arrived late to the party but it was still in full swing at 5.00pm. There was food, entertainment and activities on offer on both sides of the Railway Tracks.
The place was packed, not a small feat as it stretched over the Railway line and over a couple of streets.
Nice to see so many favourite food vendors touting their wares. One of our favourite meals was sold out but there was a lot left to choose from.
Was dying to catch a glimpse of Henry on Eighth but that wasn’t to be.
Liked the Parasol painting activity a lot, it was very arty and a lot of adults were participating.
There was live entertainment and it set a mood. Some people were sitting and listening quietly. Possibly recovering from all the food they’d eaten.
Cocktail Gastronomy were their usual buoyant selves. The bar was a big attraction and cocktails could be spotted all over the bar’s enclosure.
Pash Froyo, Comida Do Sul, Miam Miam, Grilled to the Mac, Spicy Bites and Bangkok Jump Street seemed to be doing a load of business. Sorry, can’t seem to remember any more than that.
The Cafes along Whatley Crescent were also getting a lot of visitors.
The place was jumping. And, very friendly.
We walked over the railway line to the Peninsula Tavern, who were hosting a number of food vendors. And, there was a petting zoo, which again seemed to be attracting the adults.
This side of the tracks was a lot quieter but we ate and drank and eventually toddled off home. Two Festivals in one day was enough for this little black duck.
It was a great atmosphere and there was loads to do and see.
