Adding to an im­pres­sive line-up of events at the this year’s Rock­ing­ham Beach Cup is the Com­mu­nity Arts Fes­ti­val, which will fea­ture buskers, street per­form­ers and ar­ti­sans, and artists.

The fore­shore will pro­vide a scenic back­drop for the fes­ti­val, which will be held at both Churchill and Bell parks.

Ro­tary Club of Palm Beach pres­i­dent Rick Daw­son said fes­ti­val would cater for the whole fam­ily.

“We’ve got al­most 50 mar­ket stalls and 16 lo­cal food ven­dors,” he said.

“There will be a stage that will fea­ture bands, in­clud­ing lo­cal mu­si­cians.

“There will also be a Mo­tor­plex screen, so all the ac­tion can be viewed.”

There will also be an art ex­hi­bi­tion, sculp­tors, pho­to­graphic dis­play, wood turn­ers, a black­smith, pot­tery dis­play and a kids car­ni­val with rides.

“The aim is to lift the pro­file of Rock­ing­ham, sup­port lo­cal busi­ness and then raise money for char­ity,” Mr Daw­son said.

“It’s a great event and we’re re­ally look­ing for­ward to the com­mu­nity com­ing along and sup­port­ing it.

“We’re al­ready plan­ning next year’s.”

The parks that pro­vide a raised view­ing area will also give fes­ti­val­go­ers a view of the horse race.

The free Com­mu­nity Arts Fes­ti­val will be held on Satur­day and Sun­day, from 10am un­til 5pm.
