BrisStyle gets set to be Tickled Pink!

The BrisStyle Indie Mother and Child Markets are turning a brighter shade of pink this October in support of National Breast Cancer Month and there’s no better place to do it but in the heart of the festivities, their home at St Augustine’s Church in Hamilton.

The entire Racecourse Rd Precinct will come to life with pink balloons, yarn bombed trees and a myriad of festivities to support the Mater Hospital’s “Chicks in Pink” charity and the BrisStyle Indie Mother and Child Market is set to turn on festivities for all the family.

Not only will the Chicks in Pink team be onsite raising awareness for Breast Cancer but the BrisStyle artists, crafters and designers will be once again contributing their amazing wares to their now famous Charity Raffle to raise funds as well!

Last weekend the Breast cancer Awareness festivities kicked off with The Brisbane Festival’s “Close Knitting Circles” at the fabulous Lido Woodfire Decadence , Trattoria Italiana and Vagelis in the brilliant Racecourse Rd Precinct in Hamilton/ Ascot.
