Second time around – here’s the rescheduled BrisAsia events you can catch this weekend
When we mentioned that a Lunar New Year Rooftop Party was coming to town as part of the BrisAsia Festival, you guys got all kinds of excited. It was a huge bummer when the event was called off due to extreme weather last weekend, but we were offered almost instant relief with the announcement that the event was moved to this Saturday March 3. The Sunnybank cinema rooftop will be transformed into a bright and bold celebration of all things Asian – think delicious food and drink, live music, entertainment and a spectacular fireworks display all inspired by traditional Lunar New Year festivities.
Another big BrisAsia Festival event that copped the wrath of some nasty weather was Kisaragi Sai and its accompanying kite procession as part of the Kite Wishes Project. This Saturday is our chance at a do-over, with the Roma Street Parkland playing host to the Japanese cultural festival. Two stages will come alive with live performances, as well as martial arts, Bonsai, Ikebana (the Japanese art of flower arrangement), market stalls, artist demonstrations, exhibitions and children’s activities. Oh, and come hungry – a great range of pop-up food stalls will be operating for your eating pleasure.
