Melbourne coming alive for street festival

October 15, 2016 by  

For the 39th year, The Centre in Melbourne is about to produce the Spring Fling Street Festival.

More than 15,000 visitors are expected to enjoy live music, street food and beer gardens, markets and other activities provided by businesses from the local community. The ever popular Spring Fling Dog Show will return with prizes for the most obedient dog, the best costume, and the best trick, to mention only a few.

The Centre, which is based in Errol Street, has been working for 40 years as a not-for-profit organisation, providing events and activities for the local community. It will be the heart of operations for information during the Festival.

Musical entertainment will be provided by a number of local musicians and bands, along with children’s entertainers and comedians. The Precinct Music, the Alexkarbon Community and the Little Vic Stages, the Town Hall Walkway, the Impact Events Acoustic Area and the Club Voltaire Carpark Stage will be the places to be for entertainment. Performers will include Héloise, Mondegreen, Lady Oscar and Unpainted Prospects.

It is likely that banner printing, promotional products and flyers will be used for this event, which will take place this Sunday, October 16, from 10:00 am to 6:00pm in North Melbourne at Victoria Street and Errol Street and adjacent laneways. Entry is free and open to all ages.
