Thanks to the generosity and fun-loving spirit of various artists and local celebrities like Mark Wallbank and Trelise Cooper, a tribe of life size monkey art pieces will pop up all over Parnell. Not willing to miss out on the fun, Parnell’s prized establishments and cafes will also be dabbling in a little monkey business with merchandise and menu options, creative window displays and themed surprises to delight both the young and young at heart. Then, on Saturday February 13th, to commemorate the Chinese New Year festivities, you’re invited to witness not one but two thrilling lion dance performances in Heard Park.
It’s for a good cause after all, with proceeds going to the Starship Foundation National Air Ambulance Service.
