The ‘Blue Brick Road’ will return for its second year with new and exciting stallholders getting involved. Attendees visit all six stalls to receive a letter to spell out a secret word which will allow them to enter into the running to win one of five exclusive showbags drawn hourly.

Mayor Gillian Aldridge OAM said thousands of people from Salisbury and surrounding areas flocked to the Salisbury Fringe Carnival every year.

“Council is thrilled to offer this opportunity to celebrate Fringe time for free, with a huge array of activities for all members of the family,” she said.

“We are proud to be attracting more people to our Salisbury City Centre, which has been rejuvenated as a vibrant, enjoyable and safe place for people to visit.”
