Melbourne is magical when it puts on a show. And despite the clouds and occasional drizzle today, it did so once again.
It’s doubly special for me, in that I can revisit a festival so much a part of my childhood, but now with my own daughter during her childhood years, and watch her excitement and awe at it all.
The trees with strings of light bulbs strewn between; pulsating music on high-flying, heart wrenching rides; candy floss; hot jam doughnuts; dodgem cars; guys tearing it up on the skateboard ramp; free and awesome music… it all makes for a pretty cool experience.

I love this city. I am so grateful to live in it.
