What's on in Brisbane this weekend: 27-29 July
Stap yourselves in BubHubbers, because we have a whole lot of Brissy awesomeness to get through this weekend:

The Billycart Markets are celebrating Christmas in July on Saturday at Sacred Heart Primary School, Sandgate. Yummy food, live music, and beautiful handmade goods all make for a fun family day out. Open 11 til 4pm.
The Delectable Food Festival winds up this weekend, and they've saved the yummiest treats for last. Matt Moran, Justin North, Luke Ngyuen, and Adam Brand are some of the fab foodies who will be workshopping it this weekend at Southbank. Kids will find plenty to tantalise their tastebuds at the Grow Series events, including the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation Treasure Hunt. Or just pop by and say hiya to Ranger Stacey from Totally Wild. More information about these delectable events and more can be found on the website.
Stradbroke Chamber of Music Festival promises sun, sand, and sultry tunes, all within the perfect Straddie locale. Concerts are scheduled throughout the entire weekend, starting Friday. Check the website for the sensational program.
Speaking of music, Qpac will be alive with the sound of music this weekend with its Sing-a-long-a Sound of Music film screening. Dress up, get happy, climb every mountain if you have to. Screenings in Friday and Saturday, see website for details.
A cultural delicacy in itself, the Wesley Mission Multicultural Festival brings colour and flavour to Chermside, with dancing, markets, face-painting and music. The day kicks off from 10am till 2pm at Wheller Gardens Parkview, 930 Gympie Road, Chermside.
Whatever you do, may your weekend be filled with plenty of wonderful winter sunshine!
