Celebrate the return of warmer weather at Whitehorse City Council’s ever popular Spring Festival on Sunday 20 October 2013.
Spring Festival is a free, fun-filled day that celebrates our vibrant community! Offering a perfect day out for all the family, this year’s festival will have a Magical Garden reflecting the leafy green parks and gardens Whitehorse is so well known for with a cheeky nod to the quirky, exciting world of Lewis Carroll’s famous Alice in Wonderland.
Come with us down the rabbit hole and enjoy a huge variety free rides, performances, workshops and activity session – have your face painted, sit down to lunch at the Mad Hatters Tea Party or bring your favourite bear to the Teddy bears’ picnic. But that’s not all! There will be circus shows and workshops, and giant garden games and the best local bands, singers and artists will give live performances across five stages. Not all the action will happen on stage – festival goers will need to look to the sky to appreciate the aerial acrobatics of the Indoor Trapeze Centre. Guests can also expect plenty of great food, delicious coffee and sweet treats, and there will be ample seating and grassed areas to kick back, relax and enjoy the festivities.
Green thumbed Vasili Kanidiadis from TV’s Vasili’s Garden will MC the event while the Green Gardening Hub will feature a huge variety of workshops and demonstrations.
And most importantly, Spring Festival provides a great opportunity to get to know your local neighbourhood with the event showcasing displays by an abundance of local hobby clubs, interest groups and service providers, so come along and learn more about the activities offered just around the corner.
As parking is limitted, we'd like to encourage people to arrive at the Spring Festival by bicycle and use the fantastic ‘bicycle valet parking’ arranged by the City of Whitehorse Bicycle Advisory Committee (CoWBAC). You won’t need to worry about locking your bike or finding somewhere to put it – simply ride up to the attendants at the front of the site and ask them to take care of it for you.
