Southern Gazette (Victoria Park) - - Front Page - Aaron Cor­lett

MORE than 40,000 peo­ple are ex­pected to im­merse them­selves into a sea of colour and fun at the Vic Park Sum­mer Street Party this Sun­day.

Chi­nese lion dancers, Bol­ly­wood per­form­ers and in­die rock­ers will all per­form at the fes­ti­val, which takes place on Al­bany High­way be­tween Dane and Mint streets from 2pm to 9pm.

UpBeat Events di­rec­tor Ken Allen said there was a fo­cus on lo­cal per­form­ers and groups at this year’s event, which is spon­sored by the South­ern Gazette.

“The main stage has been pro­grammed by Dy­lan Sains­bury, from Rhubarb Records, and fea­tures lots of in­die mu­si­cians,” he said.

“There will be a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween the Chi­nese Com­mu­nity Cen­tre Lion Dance Troupe and the Bol­ly­wood Dance Stu­dio, which will in­clude Junkadelic and the Eco Faeries.

“There will be buskers, which will fea­ture per­form­ers from in and around Vic­to­ria Park.”

Mr Allen said there would be more ac­tiv­i­ties for chil­dren, in­clud­ing pets, a dunk tank, bouncy cas­tle and climb­ing wall.

“There will also be the Mooja Christ­mas Wish­ing Tree, where peo­ple can write their Christ­mas wishes,” she said.
