Ge­orge Street Fes­ti­val is on again

Fremantle Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

BRING­ING peo­ple to­gether is what the Ge­orge Street Fes­ti­val wants to achieve.

The fes­ti­val is back for an­other year after it be­gan in the late 1980s.

East Fre­man­tle Mayor Jim O’Neill said com­mu­nity fes­ti­vals were im­por­tant.

“It re­flects the great com­mu­nity spirit in East Fre­man­tle,” he said.

“The fes­ti­val brings peo­ple to­gether like fam­ily re­unions.

“It’s a great ex­cuse for friends, fam­ily and neigh­bours to get to­gether and en­joy the spirit of the fes­ti­val.

“Like fam­ily gath­er­ings, par­take of good food, be en­ter­tained and per­haps even catch up on news that our usu­ally busy life­style pre­vents us from shar­ing.”

The fes­ti­val will in­clude ar­ti­san stalls, mu­sic, busk­ing and street artists.

The East Fre­man­tle Fes­ti­val is not just for kids... Anouk Dore.
