FREMANTLE will be in party mode on the closing day of the Fremantle Festival, and there are few better ways to celebrate the colour and diversity of the day than popping in at the Freo De Janeiro market.

Held at Pioneer Park, the market will have some of Fremantle’s best street food vendors, with everything from fish and chips, to quesadillas, falafels, coffee, cake and ice cream, as well as having a smattering of artists and traders.

Organiser Kylie Wheatley said the markets were a perfect precursor to the day’s big events, the Fremantle Festival parade and Diwali street dance party.

‘It will be a melting pot of Freo creativity with a fantastic setting in the shady and iconic Pioneer Park with the Freo Train Station on one side and the parade up ahead,’ she said.

‘I love being involved with my community and peers and it’s always an incredibly supportive and rewarding experience and Fremantle has given me more than I ever expected.

‘Parade day in Freo is an institution, and Freo de Janeiro is the perfect way to add to the enjoyment of it.’
