Do you ever wish that you could go to an old-school party? No, not a house party with 30-year old whiskey, copious amounts of spandex and parachute pants and Salt N' Pepa blasting from the stereo, but the way people really used to party back in the day. A carnival atmosphere, with outrageous costumes, dancing and all manner of incredible feats on display.
If you happen to own a piece of property in Adelaide, you can attend just such an event. Every Friday and Saturday until 12 July at the Adelaide Casino in North Terrace, you can enjoy the classic carnival atmosphere at the Carousel of Dreams.
The event is on from 6 p.m. on Fridays and 8 p.m. on Saturdays, so if you're ever lacking plans during the evening in the weekend, you can head down and enjoy the festivities.
The show will feature a range of live acts, and will keep your appetite sated with a variety of delicious food on offer. While you wine and dine, you can watch jugglers, magicians, mimes, snake-charmers, acrobats, contortionists and many more performers do what they do best. One such act will be the beautiful and exotic "serpent dancer", Flavella L'Amour, who brings her mix of burlesque and interpretive dance to the show.
The great thing about the event is the range of performers – depending on what night you go, you're liable to see something very different. On top of those already listed, you could well see fire twirlers, fire breathers and even trapeze artists. But don't worry – these are professionals we're talking about, so things aren't going to get messy.
Real estate in Adelaide is highly desired, and with events like the Carousel of Dreams on offer in the city, is there any question why?
