Riverfire at Riverlife 2012

Saturday September 29 – AFL Grand Final Day, NRL Grand Final Eve – what a weekend!

Sydney won in Melbourne, Melbourne won in Sydney and the whole city of Brisbane won with what might be the best Riverfire Festival yet.

Mr Bojangles Entertainment were in the Grand Marquee at Riverlife Function Centre just down from the Story Bridge and right beside the Kangaroo Point abseiling cliffs. It’s also just across the river from the Botanical Gardens and the River Stage where Parklife was in full swing.

There were two screaming jets (F/A18a’s from Amberley), two Blackhawk Army helicopters and two ARH Tiger Army choppers; there were thousands of people of all ages lining the Brisbane River bank; there was one of the best firework displays you’d see anywhere in the world, to the synchronized music of MMM; and there was Mr Bojangles making hundreds of people dance with music from Great Balls of Fire to Gangnam Style.

Thank you Riverfire organizers. Thank you Riverlife Function and Adventure. Thank you people of Brisbane. We WILL be back again next year.

Incidentally – Riverlife is the place to be on New Year’s Eve as well. We’ll do it all again.
