Fam­ily fes­ti­val

Southern Riverina news - - FINCITY FOOD & MUSIC FEST -

You can get a real taste for Fin­ley and the wider South­ern Rive­rina at this Satur­day’s in­au­gu­ral FinCity Mu­sic and Food Fes­ti­val.

The twi­light event will be held in Fin­ley’s Rail­way Park, start­ing from 5pm and run­ning through un­til about 9pm.

Free to at­tend, the event will fea­ture food and mar­ket stalls and a eclec­tic mix of mu­si­cal per­for­mances.

The food and mu­sic will be the back­drop to the Fin­ley Farm­ers’ Mar­ket, which has moved its nor­mal times­lot to fit in with the new fes­ti­val idea.

Fin­ley Cham­ber of Com­merce, In­dus­try and Agri­cul­ture pres­i­dent Gary Carr said it will be the ‘‘per­fect event’’ for peo­ple of all ages.

‘‘This is an ex­cit­ing way to show off the lo­cal food and mu­sic this great town boasts,’’ he said.

‘‘It’s the per­fect chance to bring a chair or pic­nic rug and sit back and re­lax with some de­li­cious gourmet cui­sine from a huge va­ri­ety of our lo­cal food stalls.

‘‘Rail­way Park is the pic­ture-per­fect set­ting for FinCity, which will be com­bined with a farm­ers’ mar­ket at­mos­phere.

‘‘We’re hop­ing to make FinCity a per­ma­nent fix­ture on the Fin­ley spring calendar.

‘‘FinCity will also show the hard work and com­mit­ment that the Fin­ley com­mu­nity has for the town.’’

Specif­i­cally cater­ing for the younger mem­bers of our com­mu­nity, Bi­ralee Preschool will be host­ing a range of chil­dren’s ac­tiv­i­ties at the event.

It will in­clude sci­ence ex­per­i­ments, bub­ble blow­ing and plas­ter work.

The weather pre­dic­tion for the in­au­gu­ral event is look­ing very bright, with El­ders Weather pre­dict­ing a sunny day with a top of 25°C.
