Spring is here and so are the market stalls
The Spring Fling Street Festival will be held on 21st October 2018, from 10.00 am to 6.00 pm.

Melburnians are getting ready to go to this fabulous festival which is now in its 41st year. It will be held on Errol Street which is accessible by tram, train, walk or car.

There will be pop up markets, street food, beer gardens, entertainment, a dog show, and local businesses will be there in force.

The aim of this festival is for people to connect and celebrate the bustling inner-city community. There will also be an excellent line-up of local musicians, bands, acoustic performers, choirs, community groups, dance groups, children's entertainment, comedians and more.

There will be two performance areas - the Precinct Music Stage and Alexkarbon Community Stage.

You can get comfortable on the grassed area or you can dance to great music. Or why not taste the many different foods from the variety of food trucks on offer. You can even buy a cold beer and relax with friends while being entertained by Melbourne's best local talent at The Precinct Music Stage.

The entrance to this area is via the corner of Errol Street and Victoria Street.

THE MORITZ BAR will feature drinks from Spain and will have their own pop up on Queensberry Street as part of this year's Multicultural Laneway.

You can learn to dance, learn a craft and watch traditional performances, all while eating delicious food and drinking a Spanish Moritz beer.

THE StARTers MARKET is back again this year and is an exciting initiative which showcases and supports the many talents of Melbourne's artists and creators. Here artists will either just exhibit or will exhibit and sell their works.

This will be located near the main festival entrance on Victoria Street. Most of these artists will not have shown their work before, so it should be an interesting part of the festival.

This is always a popular event at the festival and the categories featured include:
Owner/dog look alike
Best trick
Best costume
Most obedient

So start practising now so you can enter your dog!

There will be so many stall holders, and some of these include:

* Melbourne Paella Company
Makers of authentic, delicious paella from Spain.

* Lost Dogs Home
This is a shelter for both cats and dogs and here you can adopt an animal and give it a forever home.

* Smoothie Planet
