Festival fun on the way

This year’s Festival of Fisher’s Ghost will kick off Thursday, October 30 with the opening of the Craft Exhibition and will conclude on Sunday, November 9 with the Fun Run and the final day of the carnival at Bradbury.

A report to council for the July 29 meeting stated that this year’s Street Parade theme will focus around the 30th anniversary of Campbelltown’s Sister City relationship with Koshigaya.

‘‘Participants will be encouraged to incorporate a Japanese theme into their entry; or they may use the history of Fisher’s Ghost as the

inspiration for their float,’’ the report said.

The Street Fair will feature a host of stalls throughout Queen Street and Mawson Park, which will become a kids fun zone, with a range of stage entertainment, a petting zoo and free activities.

The GYMBUS will be a new addition to this zone, which offers children an opportunity to participate in a range of activities inside a double decker bus that has been refurbished with modified gymnastic and play equipment.

The bus includes a fireman’s pole, tunnels, slides, trapeze, roman rings, monkey bars, ladders and more to encourage children to climb, roll, slide, swing and dance their way around.

A range of accessible soft play activities will also be setup outside the bus.

Craft Exhibition entries will be accepted from Monday, September 29. Categories include

hand knitting, crochet, embroidery, machine sewing, patchwork, papercraft, folk art,

leatherwork, woodwork, ceramics, pottery, bears/dolls/soft toys, cakes/cookies/cupcakes,
