Fun, food and culture
FESTIVAL BACK WITH A BANG
WATERFORD Plaza will transform into a sea of culture this month as the Waterford Plaza Street Festival comes to town once again.
Last year was the festival’s inaugural year, for which it was awarded an Excellence in Marketing for the Community category in the 2014 Property Council of Australia WA Property Awards, and this year it promises to be bigger and better.
It is part of the City of South Perth’s 2015 fiesta and will be held over two days, bringing a mix of food, entertainment and fun to the plaza.
It will feature market stalls from Waterford Plaza retailers, fresh produce, samples, cooking demonstrations, one-off exclusive offers, roving and stage entertainment, plus plenty of fun for the kids, including a petting zoo and face painting.
Festival-goers will also be treated to a weekend of spectacular cultural entertainment both on the main stage and around the promenade, including Chinese lion dancing, Ukrainian cossack dancers, a roving piano accordion player and the portable party that is Wasamba.
In what is sure to be a highlight of the weekend, Penrhos College and Ursula Frayne Catholic College will compete in the Cultural Cook Off, judged by WA MasterChef contestant Amy Shields. 11.30am: 12.30 pm: 1-2pm: 1-4pm: 1.15pm: 11.35am: Saladang Sutra performance 11-2pm: Petting zoo Noon: Wasamba carnival drummers 12.25pm: Zumba demonstration 12.30-2.30pm: Roving geisha girls 2.05pm: Traditional lion dance
