Experience Acland street, unleashed. Head over to the popular precinct that is the iconic Acland Street in St Kilda on Saturday 12 November 2016 from 10am to 9pm, for all day celebrations and family fun. Live music, children's activities, roving entertainment, dance, readings, an open air ball, and of course all your favourite Acland Street shops, cafes, restaurants and bars are part of the course on the day.

Competing with the Plaza Stage, there'll be a pop-up playground for the kiddies. All workshops are free and suitable for children ages 3 to 12 (and their families). No bookings required; just turn up. All day face painting by Sparkles is bound to be a popular destination, as will be the following, no doubt.
