To think - only a couple of weeks ago we were planning our costumes and preparing for the Ballan Autumn Festival. Now we’re all stuck at home with only the occasional visit to the @countrygrocersigaballan/the set of Mad Max Beyond Supermarket to relieve the claustrophobia. We’ve gotta remember three things: 1) listen to the government’s advice: distance, be safe, stay home, scrub everything 2) connect with one another where we can - we are ALL IN THIS TOGETHER 3) it’s okay to be profoundly freaked out by what we’re all going through. Even superheroes get the blues. #baf2020 #ballan #ballanautumnfestival20 #ballanautumn2020 #autumn #autumnfestival #victoria #ballanvictoria #victorian #victorians #BAF #BAF! #visitvictoria #victoriaaustralia #moorabool #mooraboolshire #ballarat #ballaratlife #ballaratlifestyle #ballaratfood #visitballarat #ballanAF2020 #baffettes #cosplayer #cosplayers #cosplaying #ballanautumnfestivalinspring ...

A week ago we were making Captain America shields and polishing our Black Widow belt buckles in preparation for the BAF! today. We postponed the event due to coronavirus, and while it was ABSOLUTELY the right call, we are plum devastated we’ll be waiting another six months for the party we were so longing to have. I’m telling you, though, by the time October 18 rolls around, I reckon this community will be GAGGING to get out on the streets with their capes on and be the heroes we want to see in the world. In the meantime, tag us into your posts and stories, tell us who your favourite superheroes are and let’s all think BIG BIG BIG for that festival in the springtime. WE ARE SURE ALL GOING TO NEED IT. #baf2020 #ballan #ballanautumnfestival20 #ballanautumn2020 #autumn #autumnfestival #victoria #ballanvictoria #victorian #victorians #BAF #BAF! #visitvictoria #victoriaaustralia #moorabool #mooraboolshire #ballarat #ballaratlife #ballaratlifestyle #ballaratfood #visitballarat #ballanAF2020 #baffettes #cosplayer #cosplayers #cosplaying ...
