The Sou’West Vintage Fest has got to be one of the most colourful, chilled, entertaining days in WA’s south west. Aiming to bring together a community of vintage lovers to celebrate all things retro, the full-day event held every year in November is jam packed with good, ole fashioned fun. This year’s theme was beach party so the place was awash with bright leis, Hawaiian shirts and old-school surfboards. With plenty of family-friendly activities during the day and turning up the heat at night, it’s quickly become one of my favourite events and something I look forward to every year.
It’s so exciting to see food trucks and food stalls staking a place in Perth’s dining scene – although it does make it harder and harder to choose which events to go to! On Sunday night alone we had a choice between the Night Noodle Markets, the Food Truck Rumble, and Truck Stop at Perry Lakes Reserve (on every Sunday in April).
We decided to take a second trip to the Night Noodle Markets, which are presented as part of WA Today’s Good Food Month. This foodie oasis has moved to Elizabeth Quay following last year’s markets in the Cultural Centre, and I have to say it works. There’s more space, a better atmosphere, the food available have really been stepped up a notch and everything seemed to run fairly smoothly.
