March may be the state’s maddest month, but the fun starts in February. Here’s why.
Bohemian Rhapsody Singalong at the Moonlight Cinema
When: 7 February
Where: Botanic Park, Adelaide
There’s still time to grab a picnic rug, pack a basket-full of goodies and head to Botanic Park for a very different Moonlight Cinema experience.
If you haven’t already seen the Grammy Award-winning flick, Bohemian Rhapsody, grab tickets to the special interactive 7 February screening.
Sing along to Queen’s smash hits with subtitles to prompt you if you forget the words – it’s like karaoke but outdoors.
Can’t make it to this movie? Take your pick from a great range of titles before the Moonlight Cinema switches off on 17 February. Don’t forget: if you’re an RAA member, you can buy tickets online for $15 – just head here.
St Jerome’s Laneway Festival
When: 8 February
Where: Hart’s Mill, Port Adelaide
Who said industrial was cold and clinical? Port Adelaide transforms into a musical oasis when local and international performers make their way to historic Hart’s Mill this month.
Whatever your taste in music – indie, rock or rap – St Jerome’s Laneway Festival gives you an exclusive opportunity to take in tunes on the waterfront.
This festival has come a long way since its humble beginnings as a series of weekly shows in a tiny Melbourne bar in 2005.
5K Foam Fest
When: 9 February
Where: Oakbank Racecourse, Adelaide Hills
Weave through more than 20 obstacles including a gigantic inflatable waterslide dubbed as the world’s largest, mud pits and, of course, a lot of foam – 2.5 million cubic feet to be exact.
The event supports the Make-A-Wish Foundation, raising funds for sick children, and you can too. Start a GoFundMe page or donate when you register, and don’t forget to bring a change of clothes.
Chinatown Lunar New Year Street Party
When: 9 February
Where: Chinatown, Adelaide
Ready to ring in 2019 all over again? Chinatown comes alive with colour and culture during this annual celebration of Chinese New Year.
Dig into dumplings and other delicious Asian dishes, watch the traditional lion dancers and check out the market stalls. It’s the year of the pig, which is believed to symbolise good fortune. We like the sound of that.
All British Day
When: 10 February
Where: Echunga Recreation Grounds, Adelaide Hills
You won’t see the Queen, but you can marvel at some of Britain’s best vehicles at this annual motoring event in the Adelaide Hills.
More than 800 British-built vehicles are entered in the extensive display each year, from the Mini to the Morris Minor.
If you can take your eyes off the classic beauties for just a moment, look up to the sky – this year, there’ll be a breathtaking aerobatic display by 13-time world aerobatic champion Chris Sperou.
