The community’s love and support for The Waterfront Festival is stronger than ever.

This year’s event was a huge success and the wild weather didn’t deter locals or visitors from coming down to party with us.

People from across Victoria found their way to the Frankston Waterfront for brilliant live music and some tasty food truck snacks.

The activities, rides and markets kept everyone smiling throughout the weekend.

We can’t wait for next year’s festival.
