This will be a fun day for all ages
On Sunday 5th May 201, Mount Hawthorn will transform its streets and lanes into a vibrant street festival for all ages. It will be on from noon to 7pm for this year's Mt Hawthorn Streets and Lanes Festival powered by Synergy.
In 2018, over 45,000 people attended what was hailed by many as the perfect family day out. This year in 2019, organisers are expecting similar numbers of people to once again enjoy a great series of attractions to suit all ages and tastes.
The festival will take place along Oxford Street (from Anzac Road) and along Scarborough Beach Road up to Matlock Street and throughout surrounding side streets including Flinders, Fairfield and Hobart Streets and incorporating The Mezz shopping centre.
Highlights of the Mt Hawthorn Streets and Lanes Festival include the following:
Live music ranging from jazz to indie rock to acoustic with entertainment stages featuring bands, DJs, big bands, soloists and local performers
Food and plenty of it with alfresco dining from local restaurants and cafes
Pop-up street bars
Family fun including a petting zoo, free activities, billycarts, side show alley and face painting
The event is on just one week prior to Mothers' Day and local retailers and market stalls will have many quality products, artworks, accessories, decor and more. These will be perfect as gifts for your mother!
This year's festival also focuses on the secrets of the streets and lanes of Mt Hawthorn with local residents and businesses encouraged to share little known facts about the community.
