Burwood Food & Wine Festival

I wasn't expecting much from Burwood's Food & Wine Festival. I reckon it doesn't differ much from the Campsie Food Festival. Still, it's been a while since the family went out (and I get to meet GF on the side).

We parked at Burwood Plaza, then started walking along Burwood Road towards Westfield. A short section was closed to vehicular traffic, and there are stalls on each side of the road. I understand there are 20 restaurants offering selected food from their menus and 7 wineries offering wine tastings. On stage is the Casanova's Kiss band, and various games and rides and roaming performers to entertain the kids.

It started drizzling when we got there around 1:30pm, so we took shelter inside Westfield. Some ice cream and fried dumplings later, we met up with GF and her family at the festival. (That's where our moms met for the first time. Mom actually mistook her to be GF's friend.) After that, we went on to Rhodes Shopping Center for the Ikea clearance sale and their cheap mirienda. The kids' menu has smaller servings, but is definitely cheaper and you get a free fruit.
