Posted on Posted in News

Brisbane CBD – Saturday 7th June 2014

Brisbane CBD comes to life with the first ever Festival of Chariots! Gather at Queens Park at 10am to join our unique, jubilant street parade –  as we pull a massive hand-drawn chariot through the city streets – changing things up by bringing the festival to the people. We’ll traverse through Elizabeth, Creek and Adelaid Streets and amidst a musical fanfare of song and dance, we’ll lead you to a colourful cultural fiesta in King George Square on Saturday 7th June from 10:30am. Step back in time to experience the culture of the East – Live music, drama, yoga, fashion boutiques, kids corner with craft activities and face painting, henna and delicious, free vegetarian food and sweets.
