Oh, spring. After a long and chilly winter, it sure is a welcome sight to see the return of the sun, and the warmer temperatures that it brings with it. It’s possible to spend more time outside, everyone’s a little happier, and there are more events taking place. It’s a season when fun just seems to be in the air, and around every corner. Much to enjoy! If you’re taking a trip to the city towards the end of April and into May, you’ll have the chance to attend an old-school party, taste the region’s best cider, and enjoy the spectacle of a Victoria annual favourite. Check all the details below.

Party back in time

Do you ever feel like you were born in the wrong period?

Get dressed up and get involved -- you’ll have a great time.

Tasty cider

Love cider? Of course you do -- who doesn’t? On April 27, you’ll have a chance to sample all the delicious local varieties at the 4th annual Cider Social, which will take place at Sea Cider Farm & Ciderhouse. It’s sure to be a fun and tasty day!
