  • Event Details
  • Type of event: Outings
    Duration: 2 hours
    Venue: Hyde Park
    Description: Outing to Mardi Gras
    This is always a wonderfully photogenic event filled with colourful, unusual, and frequently outrageous outfits. The people are always interesting, to say the least, and all very friendly. They are not there because they are shy, they are there because they want to enjoy themselves and show off a bit. What better way for us to assist than to be there to preserve the event for posterity!

    When:              Saturday 29th February, 2020

    Getting there:  Suggested train from North Shore leaves Turramurra 1606, Gordon 1611, Chatswood 1621, and arrives Town Hall 1644.  Meet in second last carriage.

    Meeting:          We will meet on the corner of Park & Elizabeth Streets, on the Hyde Park side, at 17.00. The Parade starts at 19.30 but the assembly area around Anzac Memorial at the southern end of Hyde Park so that is where we will concentrate.
    Bring:               Camera etc of course! The action is fast-moving so a tripod won’t be useful.
