Friday night and the Parade of Light down North Terrace, Adelaide kicks off the Adelaide Fringe Festival. Tens of thousands of people joined us as we walked the Terrace looking at the many lights shows: illuminations on buildings, in the air, from sculptures; watching preview acts from those performing during the Festival over the next month; and the numerous street vendors, mainly selling food and drinks.
The Fringe Festival in Adelaide is HUGE. So much entertainment on offer around the City. Pity we are here only for a few days.
The mascot for the Festival is a “balloon styled” dog wearing a crown. One of the illuminations depicts the mascot ‘running’ over the building, minus crown, sometimes being chased by scissors. (Can you find the mascot in the slide-show below?) This balloon styled mascot was designed by Sydney-based graphic designer Jacqueline Daniel acknowledging the Chinese Year of the Dog. Its crown was signifying the crowning of anyone who joined in the festivities.
