If you’re looking for a frightfully good time, don’t miss your chance to be part of Campbelltown’s biggest community event of the year – the 2016 Festival of Fisher’s Ghost during November 4-13.
But you’d better hurry: applications close on October 12 for local community groups, businesses, organisations, schools and sporting clubs to enter their ghosts, ghouls and graveyards-themed floats in the Street Parade, Saturday, November 5.
Crowds line Queen Street each year to experience the energetic, colourful and diverse parade which reflects our community spirit, and has come to be seen as the official opening of the 10-day festival.
Entry is free and prize money will be up for grabs for best parade entries across a range of categories.
Local businesses and community groups are also invited to connect with residents and visitors by hosting a stall at the Street Fair on Saturday, November 12 from 10am to 2pm.
Applications close on October 10.
A creative and eclectic mix of around 100 stalls will entice shoppers to Queen Street to enjoy the tasty food, show bags, handmade jewellery, home and lifestyle products, fashion, and lots more.
Meanwhile, Mawson Park will be transformed into a fun zone for families with a hive of entertainment including a jam-packed program on stage, featuring Kung Fu Panda and The MacDaddy Duo, plus an animal farm, craft stalls and inflatable play.
Fred is calling on everyone to be part of the legend of Fisher’s Ghost!
