Events are back on in Frankston City with next month’s new Live and Local Event Series celebrating live music, street art, markets, great food and entertainment.
Proudly supported by Frankston City Council, the Live and Local Event Series will be held over on the weekend of 20 – 21 March at four key locations.
North-East Ward Cr David Asker said the due to the evolving COVID-19 situation, the Live and Local Event Series will replace The Waterfront Festival, and will be delivered in line with current public event restrictions.
“Put some comfortable shoes on and get ready to explore our wonderful City as we take you on a travelling journey through different sites across the weekend.
“There will be something for everyone – captivating live music, vibrant street art, markets with great bargains, mouth-watering food and a range of entertainment,” Cr Asker said.
Cr Asker added: “Following a difficult 2020 which saw lockdowns and cancelled events, residents well and truly deserve the opportunity to get out and about and celebrate Frankston.
“Our number one priority is providing a safe, healthy and fun event for locals, visitors, stallholders and performers.
“We’re committed to increased cleaning at all sites. There will also be QR code entry for all people and monitoring of numbers at each site to enable the events are delivered in line with COVID safe practices.
“It’s essential that all patrons safely interact with local businesses, food and market stalls and other festival-goers and we’ve worked tirelessly to ensure this occurs,” Cr Asker said.
