Now is the time, Griffith.
Now is the time to put your money where your mouth is.
Too long has the city spoken glowingly of the prosperity and joys of the past, wishing things could be like they once were.
Nothing ever stays the same – life is fluid, and the best parts often disappear faster than most expect.
It leaves all of us dwelling on specific parts of the past we hold dear, hoping one day there’ll be an opportunity to resurrect or experience those thrills once again.
Well, here it is.
The Vintage Festival is making its long overdue and triumphant return to the calendar, and it has people excited and talking about their Griffith nostalgia.
The event is at the tip of the tongue when it comes to the best of yesteryear for anyone calling Griffith home since before the turn of the new century.
Vintage celebrated all the best the city had to offer, building the fantastically colourful brand the Griffith has today.
The region’s quality foods and wines were on show and the city was in the spotlight sharing its cultural history.
These are the aspects Griffith residents still hold dear today, and draw cards potentially underlining the region’s spot on the map.
Other aspects of Griffith’s past had their influence too, and it’s argued they still have a say in how the city is branded from beyond its boundaries.
But the time, money and effort to bring a positive element of the city’s past back to life is not to be sneezed at. Vintage an opportunity to give Griffith the boost it needs to bring its residents into a new heyday.
For those who haven’t experienced Vintage, what can they expect?
The best of the old, mixed in with some new – much like the word itself.
Vintage is not only a term synonymous with Griffith industry and lifestyle, but a term labeling a period of origin.
Quite often ‘vintage’ is a time located so far in distant memory that anything associated with the era can be revered and appreciated for the beauty of its age.
It’s certainly the case for Griffith’s favourite long-time event, which has become a thing of myths and urban legend since the 1990s.
But just like like vinyl, skinny jeans and electro pop, the best aspects of the past always make a welcome return.
