Fun for com­mu­nity at Merge Fes­ti­val

Melville Times - - Street Watch -

BOORAGOON’S Civic Square Precinct will be trans­formed this Satur­day into a bustling vil­lage packed with live mu­sic, art, cir­cus and cabaret, mar­kets, food trucks, au­thors and more.

It is all for Merge Fes­ti­val, one fi­nal com­mu­nity spec­ta­cle be­fore work be­gins in mid-2018 on the three-year re­de­vel­op­ment of Gar­den City.

A City of Melville spokes­woman said the $200,000 fes­ti­val was de­signed to show­case the full po­ten­tial of what the Melville City Cen­tre Li­brary and Cul­tural Cen­tre could be.

She said the City wanted the com­mu­nity to be im­mersed in the event and re­port back about what it would like to see in the fu­ture cen­tre.

There will be mul­ti­ple ways to do to that, in­clud­ing shar­ing what you see your­self do­ing in the City cen­tre in five years time.

There will be a quick on­line sur­vey and the chance to chat with coun­cil­lors who will be hand­ing out free watermelon on the day. The fes­ti­val will be held be­tween 1pm and 9pm.
