Feast of fun lies ahead at 2016 Spring Festival
September 12, 2016 by Mark
Preparations for the annual Spring Festival are well underway with plenty of seaside fun on the agenda for the enjoyment of residents from Box Hill South and neighbouring suburbs within the City of Whitehorse.
Mayor Philip Daw said the event will celebrate the fun of seaside and underwater activities around a beach setting that will be replicated in the main street of Nunawading.
He said visitors’ calendars will be packed with enjoyable themes, activities, entertainment, and workshops including the opportunity for young revellers to build sandcastles and eat ice-cream.
The Mayor described the festival as a ‘much anticipated’ and ‘loved’ event that celebrated the arrival of warmer months with everything from magic, music and food stalls, to a host of attractions and kids’ activities.
He added the event will also give attendees a chance to take part in free craft and art workshops, check out a wide range of market stalls and meet representatives from some of the community’s local organisations.
Five stages will host a full programme of entertainment, including traditional cultural singing and dancing from the Chinese Opera and a host of fire tricks, knife juggling, unicycling, and human balancing by the pirate Red Mo.
Mayor Daw said the popular Dreaming Space will also return to present its circus fun zone, which will this year include an underwater twist.
The Spring Festival will be held from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on October 16.
