Lets face it; Brisbane is in absolute abundance at the moment. Christmas is coming, fairy lights are popping up everywhere, and the weather is finally on the turn for the better (fingers crossed, anyway). While the festive season does get us excited, there are still four weeks to go, and the big question we ask ourselves is: whatever will we do to pass the time?
For pre-Christmas distractions, we've rounded up five of the best events to check out this week in Brisbane. Don't get your jingle bells out... just yet.
