THIS SUNDAY 11 June 2017 all eyes will be on Fitzroy Street, St Kilda …. and this time, for all the right reasons!
The Gatwick is now vacant and preparations for The Block 2018 are well underway, and no better time to celebrate than this weekend’s QUEEN’s BIRTHDAY.
The Fitzroy Street Business Association will be hosting their first ever QUEEN’s BIRTHDAY STREET PARTY from 3pm till 6pm.
Under the meticulous eye of the Association’s Vice President & well known celebrity photographer, Murray Schoorman, the street is set to “come alive” with a bevvy of live entertainment throughout the afternoon.
Commencing seaside, at the St Kilda Seabaths, a decadent horse-drawn carriage will transport the birthday girl (Queen Elizabeth Impersonator) over the Esplanade and into Fitzroy Street. This convoy will be flanked by the official Royal British Guards and will be played in by the traditional bagpipes.
Roving up and down the street, members of the general public will be able to stop and take photographs with Her Majesty and her entourage.
Outside the Metropol complex will be a highly skilled fire twirler spinning his flames like no other guy can do.
All the while, sexy models in “Queen of Hearts” costumes and a magician will be entertaining the crowds till sunset.
You wont miss the amazing stilt walkers, adding to the exciting “street party” vibe!
It would not be a Queen’s Birthday without St Kilda’s famous resident Queen’s – DRAG QUEEN’s of course!
Look out for iconic gender illusionists, Paris, Krystal Ring, Pashion and Rita LC who will be camping it up like they do best.
Venues along Fitzroy Street will be decorated in British flair and many will be hosting after parties into the wee hours of the Monday morning. Which we may add, is a public holiday so no need to rush off to work, guests may like to splash out at the boutique TOLARNO HOTEL where they are offering their rooms for a heavily discounted rate of only $110 for the night.
The Association has enlisted the services of Melbourne’s PR queen, Helen Reizer from HRPR to ensure the street is buzzing with VIP’s and Celebrities to welcome Her Majesty and show off the streetscape from it’s best angle.
This event is a key milestone for the community as they are now on the up & up following an extremely tough and challenging trading season.
All public are invited to come along from 3pm and show their support & enjoy a right-royal party!.
