Zig Zag arts fest returns
A CROWD of 20,000 is expected to descend upon the Stirk Park area this Sunday when Kalamunda’s Zig Zag Community Arts Festival returns to the Hills after a one-year sabbatical.
Festival co-director Celia Cheffins said she had been overwhelmed by the wealth of creativity in the community and the number of people wanting to be involved.
“This year the ‘Imagine’ Festival promises to top all of our past events by combining a festival in the park and a street party in town,” she said.
“Hundreds of creative people have brought all of this together.”
Highlights include five stages of live music headlined by Odette Mercy and her Soul Atomics and acts Grace Armstrong, Black Chooks, Junkadelic and the Kalamunda Youth Swing Band and The Palindromes.
There will be face painting, rides, a kids zone, a petting zoo, circus acts and Pirateman Michael’s Fire Show.
A ‘Train of Thought’ parade of students will battle their ‘villains’ as they make their way to the stage to join forces with musicians for an anti-bully mash-up.
It will be held from 11am to 8pm.
