That time of year is here again. It's not just the part of the annual calendar that's earmarked for the Ekka, but the portion of every 12-month period when everywhere in Brisbane gets into the carnival spirit. Some do so by hosting sideshows. Others serve up strawberry ice creams. Over at Eat Street Northshore, food and fun are usually on the menu, so it's adding in a heap of rides.

Take a whirl on some dodgems, hop on a spooky train or whirl around in the air — they're all on offer. We do have some very sensible advice, though: maybe save the stomach-churning attractions until after you've tucked into all of the top bites that Eat Street has to offer.

Carnivale at Northshore is popping up across two weekends, so head by from Friday, August 9–Sunday, August 11, and then again from Friday, August 16–Sunday, August 16. It'll be open from 3pm on Fridays and Saturdays, and 11am on Sundays — with entry to Eat Street costing $3 per adult, and the rides each attracting their own fee.
