Wishbone Day 2012 -- Sydney style

Since Wishbone Day began 3 years ago it has grown in size and creativity.  Each year we see bigger and brighter Wishbone Day celebrations!  This year was no exception!  Wishbone Day 2012 was HUGE!!

Wishbone Day Sydney was held at Darling Quarter, Darling Harbour and was our largest Wishbone Day celebration ever!  Our Wishbone Day celebration was an open community picnic day with perfect sunny Sunday weather, great company including an awesome jazz band.

Just when we thought it couldn't get any better, we were treated to a surprise Wishbone Day Flashmob.  Organised by Occupational Therapy students from the University of Sydney,  the Flashmob was performed to song Price Tag which was the song featured in our previous Wishbone Day video.  It was such a fun and interactive way to bring more awareness to our Wishbone Day gathering. As the flashmob grew, so did the crowd!  

We were thrilled that Wishy made it home from his world tour just in time to join our Wishbone Day celebration.  He met many new friends and helped us raise awareness by handing out Wishbone Day postcards and sharing the Wishbone Day Poster Series with passers-by.

Another surprise visitor was Alvin.  Alvin joined us in Sydney while his family celebrated Wishbone Day in the Philippines! It was great to share Wishbone Day with him this year.

Wishbone Day Sydney was a fantastic time. Thank you to all who joined us and for making it such a special day.  A special thanks also to Ann Barnes and Adriano Carrideo for being our photographers on the day and for helping us capture memories of Wishbone Day 2012.
