Celebrating its 3rd year, the Broadford Street Festival is set to take off on the 28th of February 2015, starting at 2pm on High Street, Broadford. Just off the Hume Freeway, with special guest MC Daniel Bartlett, the Royce Twins (from X Factor) will be performing 'live' on stage, along with Melissa Defina (Rich River Idol), and The MikMaks.
The MikMak's will kick off the event at 2.10pm, followed by The Royce Twins at 2.45pm. At 3.30 pm, The MikMaks will be back to entertain, this time followed by the sweet voice of Melissa at 4.15pm. On this rotational system, the Royce Twins will be back with their beautiful vocals and guitar playing at 5pm, followed again by Melissa.
Up in a special area, Flash Twinkle Toes and his Silly Circus Act will be doing what he does best, getting laughs. Keep your eyes sharp for the festival's balloon feature as this will be directing kids to special happenings. You'll also find friends from Leigh's Animal Farm by the balloon feature.
With over 40 market and service stalls you'll find face painting, jumping castle, great food, henna tattoo, tupperware, handcrafted gifts and treasure and much much more not to mention a few surprises throughout the day. Local sporting clubs will be taking registrations and the local primary school will be out with their snags and cakes. Jumpabout Bouncers will be offering jumps for a gold coin donation per jump. Curva Boards will also be participating and you'll find them at their stall with their all terrain six wheel mountainboard.
If you're a vintage car enthusiast, you're in for a treat. There'll be a big display of 30 vintage cars from the Old Mates Car Club sitting pretty as a picture. Speaking of which, there will also be an art show at Gavin Hall featuring local artists. So go ahead and grab some free sunscreen from the information tent to slip slop slap and keep sunburn away while you enjoy a great day at the markets.
