Perth Is Hosting A Goon And Chicken Nugget Festival Next Month
Perth is copping another food and drink festival that exclusively focuses on chicken nuggets and boxed wine.
The accurately named 'Goon and Nugz' festival had its inaugural launch last year and it seems like nothing (not even the coronavirus pandemic) will stop the second event from going ahead.
Because Western Australia has been blocked off from the rest of the country for months in order to protect residents from tourists, the state has done extraordinarily well.
They have had weeks of no community transmission and it looks like they have the perfect environment for people to lap up goon and chicken nuggets.
The popular event will hit the Perth Mess Hall on November 6 and 7 and you can bet your bottom dollar that the rest of the country will want to be banging down those border walls to get in.

The event page for the festival said: "Four of Perth's top Food Trucks will be serving up classic Nugz along with Nugz inspired dishes. Vegan and Gluten-Free options available! The final menu's will be revealed closer to the date.
"A pop-up Goon Bar will be serving all your guilty cask wine pleasures along with our delicious Goontails including Classy Bogan Sours, Fruity Lexia is Sexier, Pineapple Goonjito's, Berry Goongria's, and more. A selection of Craft Beer, Spirits and non-alcohol options available."
We would go specifically so that we can shout those cocktail names at the bartenders (in the nicest way possible, of course).
Festival Creator Ronan Freeburn has revealed where the concept for the festival came from.
"I came up with the festival as a joke back in 2017, but people went nuts for the concept so I decided to put it on for real with the help from the good folks at Perth Mess Hall," he said.
Sadly for all those people under the age of 18, you're not allowed in. But, if you're on the cusp, you can get excited about it coming back next year if it's a big success. It'll set you back a cheeky $27 for a ticket, so get them while they're still around.
