Town turns green for fair
Upcycled treasures and secondhand belongings will be on display at the Town Square on Saturday.
It will become a hive of green activity for the annual Green Fair in the Square, from 9am to 1pm.
Residents will be able to check out the Artisan Upcycled Marketplace and Fossickers Tip Shop display while children can create recycled artworks and participate in interactive workshops at the Green Sprouts Kids Corner.
Crowds will be entertained with live music from Grok Trio, Myles Mitchell, Barefoot Bandits and the popular Albany Shanty Men while wandering around picking up new information and helpful tips for being green and sustainable.
The event will also feature delicious local treats including wood-fired pizzas, street-food vendors, juices, hot coffee and cakes, sweets and little treats.
The Green Fair on the Square will promote all things recycled, upcycled, green and sustainable.
The entire event aims to be waste wise and will promote a wide range of locally made goods.
Green Fair on the Square is proudly sponsored by Green Skills Inc., Cleanaway, Fossickers Tip Shop and the Waste Authority.
