You’ve seen the trend all over the interwebs: unicorn coffee, unicorn hair, unicorn makeup, unicorn desserts—unicorn errthang. And, in probably the most magical news (possibly of all time), our neighbour Australia is about to get two entire evenings dedicated to these glorious animals.
Let's face it, Oz is just a hop, skip and a jump away—or more appropriately, a prance away… and news has just landed that Melbourne is getting a frickin Unicorn Festival! Prepare to lose your s*** people, this is wild.
In what is probably the most Melbourne thing to ever happen (because where else would host a unicorn festival…), the iconic shopping district Melbourne Central will be full of colour for two glorious days this August. Festival-goers will be able to find unicorn-inspired makeovers, photobooths and rainbow cupcakes along with plenty more delicious food options. Instagram is about to blow up in rainbows, these pics are going to be on point.
On the food side of things there will be unicorn-inspired creations from the likes of the Bistro Morgan and Doughboys Donuts who will be serving up limited edition unicorn doughnuts! The toppings include none other than rainbow sprinkles and Persian fairy floss while other decadent stores will be serving up handcrafted rainbow chocolates and unicorn shaped biscuits. You can catch all the action on the Melbourne Central link bridge with phenomenal views to match the scene.
There has never been a more perfect time to visit Melbourne. Alone, the city is wonderful. But adding unicorns into the mix, it’s absolutely fabulous.
About time you booked that long weekend, huh?
When: Thursday 3 & Friday 4 August, 5pm – 9pm
