What This is a full day out with a selection of live entertainment throughout the day, over 40 arts and crafts market stalls, a kids corner and heaps of festival refreshments. All in the beautiful surroundings of Mindarie Marina.
The kids will enjoy the kid zone which this year includes petting farm, face painting, craft area, bouncing castle, sand and water activities and even pony rides. The kid zone will run from 11-4pm with pony rides available from 2-4pm. There are free festival balloons available too, whilst stocks last, so get in early. Outside of the kid zone, refreshments such as popcorn and fairy floss will no doubt also be a hit with the young (and young at heart). Also look out for wandering entertainers as you meander round the market stalls.
Entertainment It's not just the kids who'll be entertained, adults will love the line up of music acts arranged for the day. Grab a cold one at The Boat and enjoy Chris Murphy from 12-3pm followed by the popular Darren Reid and the Soul City Groove from 3.30-6.30pm. Or at the other end of the marina, grab a beer from the Indian Ocean Brewing Company and give your ears a musical treat courtesy of Retriofit at 12.30-3.30pm and Adam Garrett from the Voice, on stage from 4.30-7.30pm.
The festival takes place on Sunday 10th November with all the action kicking off at 9am. Don't forget that marina plays home to a number of excellent restaurants so if you're looking for more than festival foods, head for your refreshments at one of these great pitstops.
