Kan­na­ma­roo plans shap­ing

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News - BY COLIN MACGILLIVRAY

An in­crease in interactivity will be one of the fea­tures of this year’s Kan­na­ma­roo Fes­ti­val.

Hor­sham is gear­ing up for the an­nual free street fes­ti­val, from No­vem­ber 23 to 25.

Fes­tiv­i­ties will start on Fire­brace Street on the Fri­day from 6pm, with an ar­ray of stalls, street per­form­ers, work­shops and dis­plays to en­ter­tain pun­ters.

There will be plenty of chil­dren’s en­ter­tain­ment, with Ade­laide’s ‘Mr Oopy the Bub­ble Man’ one of the many per­form­ers set to de­light younger at­ten­dees.

The ac­tion will shift to Sawyer Park on Satur­day, with the Kan­na­ma­roo duck race on the Wim­mera River in the af­ter­noon and a fire­work dis­play at night.

MIXX FM and The Weekly Ad­ver­tiser will host a com­pe­ti­tion to judge Hor­sham’s best flor­rie.

Hor­sham Aquatic Cen­tre will host a pool party on the Sun­day.

Kan­na­ma­roo Fes­ti­val chair­woman Di Bell said or­gan­is­ers had lis­tened to com­mu­nity feed­back af­ter last year’s fes­ti­val and had opted to make the fes­ti­val more in­ter­ac­tive.

“There will be more roam­ing per­form­ers that ev­ery­one can in­ter­act with,” she said.

“There will also be live feeds on our Face­book page to keep ev­ery­one up­dated with what is hap­pen­ing as it hap­pens, so they don’t miss out.”

A full pro­gram will be printed in The Weekly Ad­ver­tiser closer to the fes­ti­val.
