SPLASH Adelaide – Fun for all the Family this weekend

Splash Round three is well underway and this weekend there’s plenty to do for all the family from Art installations on the Torrens to train rides around the streets.

Kicking off on Friday evening at 7pm with a family friendly party complete with food trucks, FELTspace presents FELT Natural, an exhibition along the banks of the River Torrens featuring works from 20 local artists including Matthew Bradley, Nicholas Folland, Deborah Paauwe and Ray Harris, that can be enjoyed both in daylight and after sunset.

“FELT Natural is a fantastic project that gives for me as an artist and co-director of FELTspace the opportunity to display work in a public context, bringing new life to the work and its surroundings” Ray Harris.

The exhibition, featuring site-specific time-based works, including a variety of visual and sensory experiences from moving images to tricks of the light, some even inviting participation from member of the public will run throughout the weekend.

While on Sunday the Adelaide Night Market is back between 4 and 8 pm on North Terrace. Experience food sensations from around the globe, start shopping for unique Christmas presents and enjoy the ambiance of this market on our beautiful cultural boulevard.

Further along North Terrace on Sunday in front of the SA Museum, Adelaide’s first pop up of PLAY will appear, comprising over 100 board games, card games and books to choose from as well as other table-top games all hand made from up-cycled materials and painted by some of Adelaide’s amazingly talented artists, so there’s sure to be something for everyone.

Relax on the lawn for a picnic over a game of Uno or pull up to a table and challenge your friends to Snakes & Ladders or Checkers, or just relax in the shade with our selection of coffee table books and children’s story books.

“As you can see from this line up, each weekend and often during the week there’s an eclectic mix of activities and events, so there really is something for everyone,” said Stephen.

“Whether you want to expose your children to art, or eat some interesting food, there’s always something to do in the city and North Adelaide.

“As the days get longer it’s good to see people remaining in the city to take advantage of the balmy weather and an interest in what’s happening in their streets,” said Stephen.

Splash Adelaide is a campaign by the City of Adelaide that aims to bring our city streets and laneways to life both day and night.
