Fun for community at Merge Festival
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.
