FeNaClNG fest of­fers fun fare

Pilbara News - - PILBARA LIFESTYLE -

The an­nual FeNaClNG Fes­ti­val is back for 2016 this week­end.

The car­ni­val fun takes place from 9.30am-11pm on Satur­day and Sun­day, and Bul­garra Oval in Kar­ratha is the place to be.

The FeNaClNG Fes­ti­val is the main fundrais­ing event for the Li­ons Club of Kar­ratha/Dampier.

The FeNaClNG tag comes from the chem­i­cal sym­bols of the three main pro­duc­tion and ex­port commodities in the towns: iron ore — Fe, salt — NaCl and nat­u­ral gas — NG (not strictly cor­rect but it makes the name work).

The fes­ti­val is of such im­por­tance lo­cally that the Mon­day af­ter is taken as a pub­lic hol­i­day (in lieu of the Queen’s Birth­day).

FeNaClNG is sim­i­lar to an agri­cul­tural show but in­stead of agri­cul­ture there will be dis­plays of art and craft, food stalls, mar­kets, sideshows, rides, mu­sic, sport and en­ter­tain­ment.
