Drifting on a distinctly nautical theme this year, the Whitehorse Spring Festival is setting sail on Sunday 16th October 2016 and everyone is welcome to come aboard. Turn out and join in the fun at the Whitehorse Civic Centre in Nunawading from 10am to 4pm for a full day of FREE family entertainment and fun.
In celebration of this vibrant community, not one, but five stages will be set up around the festival area showcasing a huge range of local talent. Alongside rides and market stalls and heaps of free activities, there will be workshops, roving entertainment, food and more.
Guests, particularly the younger ones, are encouraged to get into the spirit of this event by dressing up. Help by adding you individual flair to the nautical theme by dressing up in something suitably salty. We're talking about sailors and seafarers, mermaids and mermen, Captains, animals, seashells, crabs, birds and more. Anything and everything you can think of. Immerse yourself in this aquatic extravaganza.
Relax on the 'urban beach' and enjoy stories laced with a particularly nautical slant while sea shanties fill the air and dancers show you their best deck tapping steps. The five stages will be buzzing with a huge line-up of talent to keep you fully entertained.
See the Fly Factory trapeze show, then why not give it a go. In between shows, you can line-up to take your turn on the flying trapeze.
There will be an arts and crafts market to browse, then bunk in and sample something tasty from the assortment of delicious food offerings, freshly brewed coffee, sweet treats and more. Some seating will be provided. There is also a huge grassy area where you can throw down a rug and simply sit back and revel in the atmosphere.
The Spring Festival is the perfect opportunity to explore the Whitehorse community, meet your neighbours and see what is on offer in terms of sport, recreation and community building. Local clubs and social services will be on display as well as hobby clubs, interest groups and service providers. You never know who you are likely to meet.
The Whitehorse Spring Festival is being held on Sunday 16th October 2016 at the Whitehorse Civic Centre, 379 Whitehorse Road, Nunawading from 10am to 4pm. Entry to the festival is FREE.
