A retired business owner, my passions are cooking, photography and eating. I use all three of these when I write for which is on HubGarden
Spend the afternoon roaming the streets of Vic Park
The Vic Park Summer Street Party returns in 2018 and will take place over the streets of Vic Park. Organisers have described Victoria Park as an urban village and each year, this suburb seems to grow in popularity, both to live in and to eat in!

This year, the party will be held on Sunday 9th December 2018, and there will be another great series of attractions to suit all ages and tastes. The theme this year is "The Summer of Love".

It is expected that there will be up to 50,000 attending while taking over the Albany Highway cafe strip between midday and 8.00 pm. Albany Highway has many cafes and restaurants and the quality of many of these is amazing. It is a place that I go to regularly and there is always somewhere new to try!

Food, Food, Glorious Food! - Image:

This will be a street party with so much happening, including entertainment and cultural events. These will bring together the entire community with the festival spreading out this year from Dane Street to Sussex Street.

You are invited, whether you are a local or a visitor, to attend the family fun event featuring the following:

Live entertainment
Handmade crafts
Unique market stalls
Free face painting
Free children's activities
Smashing gourmet food
Talented roaming performers
Carnival rides
Sustainability information and activities
And much more

The event will showcase plenty of local talent with the inaugural Vic Park UnEarthed competition, presented by Ben Wyatt MLA. UnEarthed will give local musicians the chance to perform at the festival, as well as having the opportunity to record their work on to vinyl. This will be a live vinyl cut by Perth Vinyl Recording.

More highlights of the Vic Park Summer Street Party include:

The Rhubarb Records Main Stage will be filled with live music to start off our glorious summer. The Rhubarb Records stage area is sponsored by Vision Studios and will feature a bigger bar area than ever, thanks to The Dutch Trading Co. (DTC), who are local craft beer makers.

Headlined by Pat Chow and featuring other acts such as Coco Blu, Ruby May and The Spunloves, Yomi Ship, The JAC, Ruby May, The Psychotic Reactions and The Hot Spell.

Dancing by the popular Chinese Lion Dancers, Celtic Dancers, Swing Dancers and a Bollywood/hip-hop fusion finale with live Dhol drummers.

Pop-up bars serving local craft beers and more.

There will be an opportunity to grant the Christmas wish of a guide dog puppy.

There will be heaps of retail therapy where you can get your Christmas gifts or spoil yourself with unique items. These will feature local business specials and market stalls.

Richard Walley and the Junkadelic Brass Band will be performing with the Kent Street High School Studio Singers.

There will be a soapbox comedy zone in the IGA Laneway and this promises to be a whole heap of fun!

The return of the fabulous giant tentacles at The Balmoral Hotel.

The Vic Park Summer Street Party will be hosted by the Town of Victoria Park and it is presented by Kleenheat.
