Walking around the streets of Adelaide, you can really feel that this is a festival. I think the reason that sets this festival apart from the rest is that the people embrace it and take ownership that it’s their own festival.
Just strolling around the Garden of Unearthly Delights on a Sunny Sunday afternoon you can get the feeling that everybody is feeling festive. It’s almost like it feels like Christmas because there is always something to look forward to. There is a smile on everyone’s face, maybe because the sun is out on what hasn’t really been a summer or maybe it is simply because people are having a genuinely good time.
There is so much variety on things to check out, magician shows, comedy shows, art exhibitions and street theatre, The Fringe emits a vibe that is hard to describe and my only recommendation is to come to Adelaide and check it out. The best thing as well is there is something for everyone to enjoy, there is a show or exhibition that caters for all tastes and most of it is top value for money.
Another thing I noticed is that there is an awesome vibe because people are getting out of their homes in large groups. I’ve seen so many families spending time out with each other having fun, groups of friends making a day of it going out and having a good time. It’s the positivity floating in the air that gives this festival an awesome vibe. There are sounds of laughter, smells of excellent food, the sound of carnies shouting out on megaphones promoting their shows and the sounds of glasses clinking.
All in all the festival has an atmosphere that I would love to be involved in all year around. A yearlong Fringe Festival? If only...
