50 years ago, Frankston Shire was changed to Frankston City. The 24th of August 1966 to be exact. Since then, the humble seaside town of Frankston has grown from a population of 42,000 people to over 135,000 and is well-known for its shopping, beaches, restaurants, support of the arts and lifestyle living.
In celebration of this this 50 year milestone, Frankston City Council are hosting a Heritage Celebration on Sunday 4th September 2016. Remember and reminisce about how much Frankston has changed in just one lifetime. The event will focus specifically on the years 1919 to 1966 and will feature photographic displays, memorabilia and a short film, which was made especially for this event.
Also in reminiscence of the 'good old days,' several local celebrities will be appearing to share their stories, engage in conversation and answer questions.
Some heritage listed properties around Frankston will be throwing open their doors to welcome visitors. Details of these houses will be available on the Frankston City Council website closer to the day.
The Frankston Heritage Celebration is being held on Sunday 4th September from 1pm to 4pm at the Frankston Football Club Function Centre, Plowman Place, Frankston. Guests are asked to register their intention to attend by phoning 9784 1085.
