There is no better way to spend a summer’s weekend than by the bay, with good friends, great food and memorable entertainment at The Waterfront Festival.
Frankston City Mayor, Michael O’Reilly urged residents and visitors alike to head to the Frankston Waterfront for a great weekend of live music and entertainment.
“The Waterfront Festival is a fantastic two days of fun and excitement for people of all ages,” said the Mayor.
“The event showcases Frankston’s iconic waterfront and celebrating Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula’s food, wine, craft beer, arts, culture and musicians.
“Enjoy live music across the weekend, get involved in some awesome free activities and indulge in great food, wine, beer and cider while you dance the weekend away in the sunshine.
“Don’t forget to check out the market stalls while you’re at The Waterfront Festival, showcasing locally sourced and handmade products and experience a thrill with rides and amusements for all ages.
“Fishing Frenzy is set to become a new attraction at the festival, with fishing talks and plenty of chances for you to learn a new skill – fit for the whole family. For those willing to get wet, there’ll be sailing, fly-boarding and stand-up paddle boarding.”
The main stage will come alive on both Saturday and Sunday, showcasing some of the region’s best local jazz, funk, indie, pop and rock talent, and the spectacular fireworks display will start at 9.45pm on the Saturday night.
“Grab your family and your mates and kick back on the grass in the Garden Bar and soak up the sounds of some of Melbourne’s hottest live music acts as you watch the sun set over the Bay,” added the Mayor.
