About a month ago, I told you about the first ever 5SOSFam meet up that Wales had. Now, I’m going to tell you about the second one – and what a corker it was. It was the last one we planned to have before Christmas, so we made damn well sure that it was very festive and I believe we certainly met our target.
After weeks of online promotion for the event, the day finally arrived on Saturday 14th December where fangirls for the Australian band, 5 Seconds of Summer, travelled from all over South Wales to meet up in order to celebrate and share their love for the Aussie boys who stole their hearts.
The event began about midday in front of the Coca Cola truck outside Cardiff National Library, where everyone met up, 5SOS cakes (made by yours truly) were shared, Christmas cards were given out and people were vlogging. It was very fun to meet the newbies and reunite with the originals.
Once everyone arrived, we all queued up for a photo by the Coca Cola truck and the staff were a bit blown away by how many of us there were. It was all very exciting and we were very hyped up with the spirit of Christmas and our love for 5SOS.
With the photo out the way, we watched the Coca Cola choir singing and got involved ourselves – getting them to sing happy birthday to 5SOS as it was their second birthday last week and I even got a bunch of people to dance to Mistletoe and Wine with Sir Cliff’s famous swaying dance. It was all great fun and I think we’ve made friends in the choir!
After taking some photos with some iconic places in Cardiff (The Millennium Stadium, for example) and a quick chat with Santa, we had a McDonalds before heading off to Winter Wonderland for some fun. Rhian and I went on the Around The World ride, which I normally love, but it was so windy, our cart was up the top of the ride and rocking from the wind – I began to believe I wasn’t going to make it to Christmas at that rate!
Once we were back safely on the ground, we dominated the Penguin Bumper Cars and tried to hit each other’s cars, which was really funny and good fun. We hung around together for a bit longer until it began to get dark and it was then we decided to say our goodbyes and send our Christmas wishes to one another before departing from another fantastic meet up.
It was so much fun and to be the one to have organised it was amazing. I loved it so much and I cannot wait until the next one. I love all my friends I’ve made from these meet ups and I can’t wait to see them next year.
The thing that topped off that weekend was the fact that none other than 5SOS themselves followed me! I cried, I screamed, I freaked out. It was unexpected but a completely pleasant surprise.
Merry Christmas and happy new year to my wonder 5SOSFam and to you, too.
