Zig Zag arts fest re­turns

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

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.
