Fun, food and cul­ture

FES­TI­VAL BACK WITH A BANG

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Front Page - Su­sanne Reilly

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
