How great is the silly season in South Australia? With the Christmas spirit drifting through the air and the sun beginning to shine, it’s great to see the state buzzing with excitement once again. As the impending Christmas and New Year’s rush gears up, plenty of fun events and activities are happening in Adelaide to get us in the summertime mood. This week is no different and we have been spoiled for choice with the help of Glam Adelaide, Fresh FM has wrapped up the top three unmissable events this weekend to make your selection that much simpler! 

Adelaide’s West End is being taken over by two EPIC street parties – FRI 17 

Two Epic parties are taking over Adelaide’s west end this Friday, December 17th. A block party paradise is taking over Gilbert Place to transform your Friday night knock offs into a mini-Hawaiian vacation. Kicking off at 2pm, say aloha to starting your weekend downtime early with tiki cocktails, banging tunes and vacation vibes for the “Last Day” block party. Solomon Street will also close off as guests flood into the Disco Paradiso with free entry. Sunny’s pizza van will be cooking steamy pizzas with Margherita, pepperoni and eggplant on offer; meanwhile, Sunny’s venue itself will continue in-house service. Grab a slice in the sun or if the heat’s too much, slide on into their booths. 

From 2pm until 12am, visitors can party in the streets while the venues will roll on until 2am. 

Both events will run on Friday December 17 from 2pmFor more information, about the Gilbert place event visit the Facebook page here. For more information, about the Solomon Street party, visit the Facebook event page here.
