Fifty tonnes of real snow is descending upon The Prince Consort — and so is a hot cider bar.
It doesn't snow in Brisbane. Sometimes, if it gets cold enough, the skies can whiten around the Granite Belt; however, that isn't Brissie. For six days in Fortitude Valley, however, you will be able to surround yourself with the best thing that winter has to offer without leaving the city — and there'll be 50 tonnes of the stuff, in fact.
Yes, all that snow will be real. You'll find it at The Prince Consort as part of the venue's Snow Week, and it'll be falling from the sky from Tuesday, June 29–Sunday, July 4. The Wickham Street spot is turning into a winter wonderland, because it's that time of year. And, it's hosting a heap of snow-themed festivities to help you make the most of the event.
Fancy a round of Snow (Drag) Queen Bingo? Have an ugly sweater you'd like to bust out at a party dedicated to terrible woollen wares? Fancy pretending you're at a ski resort? They're all options throughout the week. So is attending different shindigs dedicated to Canada and the US, to celebrate Canada Day and July 4th. (Yes, it's that time of year, too.)
Also on offer: a hot cider bar, nooks to get cosy in, art installations, live performers and DJs, and special food menus to suit the occasion.
Rugging up is recommended, obviously.
