Creek feast or famine?
It was my first time at the Creekfest and despite the milling crowds and general relaxed state of things I came away feeling disappointed.
It could have been so, so much more. I felt that it was all about Cannons Creek, and not about creating something amazing to bring people into Cannons Creek.
Was the community involved with this? Where were the stalls showcasing the local ethnic food from the area? There were a lot of information stalls which is fine, but not much of anything else.
Sugary drinks were banned, obviously promoting a healthier lifestyle, but how about actually promoting getting people moving?
Apart from the free rides, there could have been some good oldfashioned free fun and games: egg and spoon races, sack races, running races, and don’t forget the adults, we all love that stuff. It’s silly, it’s free and it’s fun. And finally, the stage was massive. Any chance of attracting some Wellie bands up there next year?
