Welcome Spring! Winter is Over


It is North Shore's biggest spring street party and it just gets bigger and better. Visitors will see a bright colourful street parade embracing ethnic communities, can wander around a great variety of market stalls and enjoy entertainment and activities throughout the day. This popular major community event offers a jam-packed program of live entertainment, rides, food, arts, crafts and it attracted over 120,000 visitors last year.

Cheap yummy street food!


Of course, there will also be street food markets all day where you can try delicious snack meals (The food stalls will be similar to the ones in the Melody Night Market). If you fancy a sit-down cafe food, Flower Child Cafe is a good choice, or head to Tim Ho Wan for a Hong Kong style yum cha lunch. Otherwise, Hurricane's Express is great for burgers and ribs.

There are so many exciting things to see and do and it is a great day out for families and friends. This fantastic family community event is proudly sponsored by Willoughby City Council.
