Spend the day at the fair
The Annual Edwardstown Primary School (EPS) Strawberry Fair is a fun event and favourite amongst the whole community. Held on the old strawberry fields in the heart of Melrose Park, this is not your average fair. Each year, this event is a huge success due to the involvement and work provided by the dedicated parents leading to fantastic stall displays and lots of fun for all involved and attending.
