Luckily, there will be a chance to learn some of the city�s dark, twisted, hidden and interesting stories when the Fremantle Heritage Festival kicks off on Friday.
The 10-day event will include a range of items that will scratch that history itch, from a range of talks and tours, to exhibitions and concerts and a variety of open days.
There are also half a dozen special events, including the new Suitcase Rummage.
Suitcase Rummage organiser Daniele Constance said the event would see participants selling vintage and handmade goods out of a suitcase at Pioneer Park.
�Some sellers coming along are bringing vintage clothes, bric-a-brac, handmade jewellery, candles, stationary, fabric and craft, so you never know what you might find at a rummage,� she said.
�Suitcase Rummage is festive, encourages swapping and haggling, fun and frolic and is a way to meet local Creatives, be inspired and take a trinket or two home with you. The Heritage Festival is such a beautiful community program. We�re all about supporting the vintage, the nostalgia, arts and culture and community and this festival does too.�
The Suitcase Rummage is on May 10 from 11am to 4pm at Pioneer Park.
