I rise to draw the attention of the House to a very exciting event which will be held in my electorate on Saturday 6 July. I am of course referring to the Teneriffe Festival that has become an integral part of Brisbane's festival calendar. The Teneriffe Festival was conceived after Brisbane's inner-city area of Teneriffe was officially named a suburb in 2010. This is the fourth year that the Teneriffe Festival will celebrate the suburb's history, energy, cultural diversity and beauty. Brisbane has put on some gorgeous weather in the past couple of years and this festival will be no different. I also enjoy the rich program of events, from street markets, concerts, historical displays, drinking areas, cultural food tents and many more interesting displays. A significant event is always the running of the rams, which is a great way to kick off the festivities of the day. The running of the rams is a fun, energetic event and I thank Murray Sutherland.
