Nothing much after RiverFire fireworks, except that our stomachs were growling extremely hard...


Everywhere was packed like sardines. At last we settled at an authentic Korean restaurant at Queen St.

OK. Photos will help Me do the talking...

My food... well I don't even know what it is called...

Riverfest Part II: RiverFire and The Glorious Skies

Awesome night...

Good show...

Spectacular photos...

Cool videos...

*** PHOTOS ***

Super-duper crowded...

Two F111 Royal Australian Air Force jets flew over Brisbane City in high speed, doing Fuel Dump and Burn - which marks the beginning of 30-minutes RiverFire fireworks show.

Light flashing across Brisbane City...

When 2 lights collide ...sounds like God is coming to Earth

Fires up an explosion of fireworks all over Brisbane City

View from South Bank...

Aerial view of Story Bridge...

Fireworks and music in the air...


Then suddenly... Brisbane high-rises went on fire (as in fireworks)

Brisbane RiverFire is one of Australia's grandest fireworks displays... of course the largest and most expensive is the New Year Countdown in Sydney.

The fighter jets flew again for the very last time... signifying the end of RiverFire 2007.

End of RiverFire. Goodnight Brisbane.

Riverfest Part I

18 November, 2007 | Written by Patchay at 10:55 PM in , ,

Riverfestival is Brisbane's major annual community and environmental festival celebrating its waterways and culture by focusing on the city's signature natural landmark, the Brisbane River.

This year, Riverfestival ran between 31 August to 9 September, but the major highlight was on this day - 1 September.

Brissy folks started to picnic as early as 8.00am

Brisbane Riverfestival incorporating RiverFire 2007 (on this day) officially marks the beginning of Spring Season. It is Brisbane's largest, grandest and most anticipated event of the year.

Crowded atmosphere...

Beautiful day...

After noon, there was a spectacular airshow by the Roulettes of Australian Snow Birds.

I managed to capture some stunts in the sky from where I was standing!

The Roulettes pilots perform aircraft formations and stunts in over the city and Brisbane River to drum up excitement.

By 5.30pm it was getting dark... and this is the time everyone is waiting for !!!

Stay tune for "Riverfest Part II: Glorious Skies".
