Big Day Out, Portside

Last Sunday dawned fine and sunny, so we decided to make the most of it by heading out.
We'd never been to Portside at Hamilton before, so when I spotted an ad for a Big Day Out for kids and dogs, we decided to check it out.
Parking was easy and free, and the atmosphere was buzzing.
There were some gorgeous stalls offering pretty clothes, art, toys and more (for kids and furry kids), plus plenty of dogs dressed in their Sunday best.

Whoever said kids and animals don't mix?

If you go: Portside Wharf is at 39 Hercules St, Hamilton, Brisbane.  There is free parking undeneath the building, and shops, cafes, cinemas and restaurants upstairs. It's also a great spot for viewing visiting cruise ships.
