Kannamaroo plans shaping
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.
