Brunswick’s Barkly Square rings in 35 years with a weekend long 80s party

An 80s street party, with puff paint & $1 cheeseburgers will be hosted by Barkly Square 7 – 9 September.

The street party kicks off on Friday 5 – 10pm, the centre affectionately dubbed, ‘Sparkly Bear’, will enter a time warp offering a ‘Cocktail & Dreams’ style bar, ‘80s tunes from DJ Joey Lightbulb, good food, flash dances, neon brights and more.

For those in need of additional sprucing, an ‘80s style hair and make-up studio will offer free beautification sessions, plus there will be an open photo booth to show off your best 80s poses.

A host of craft workshops will run for kids and adults Saturday and Sunday 10am – 3pm with ‘80s tunes pumping all weekend.  For kids, hula hoop sessions will run throughout Saturday.

Barkly Square was built in 1983 and welcomes almost 8 million customers through its doors every year.
