7-9th Sep – McDougall St Laneway

Brunswick hot spot Barkly Square is turning 35, and what better way to celebrate than taking things back to where it all began – THE 80s!!!

Bring out the shoulder pads, your high waist denims and get your leg warmers on! (encouraged, but not mandatory) because the Laneway is being transformed into a scene from 1983. Don’t worry, if you don’t have anything in your wardrobe we’ve got some dress-ups handy, along with an 80s hair & make-up station before you take that Insta-worthy pic. Just grab a brightly coloured drink whilst you listen to some old school 80s tunes and the kids get busy crafting.

Then the fun continues all weekend long with 80s arcade games, craft workshops and some high-energy aerobics FUN. Don’t forget you’re fluoro sweatbands!

Along with these amazing activations the retailers are giving you some special deals you just can’t refuse – like $1 cheeseburgers from McDonalds all weekend long! Now that’s worth celebrating.
