Beginning with our next community festival on 25th March 2017, Celebrate Mooroolbark has decided to make a conscious effort to make our event more environmentally sustainable.
Festivals are notorious for producing copious amounts of waste and using an excess of energy. While we think we’ve been doing okay on these fronts, we’d like to make more of an effort. So to launch this aspect of our festival production, we’ve taken on a green theme!
=== IT’S EASY BEING GREEN ===
If you’d like to contribute to our discussion on how we should incorporate sustainability into your community festival production and programming, you can comment on our Facebook Page or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
It may be wet and woolly out there today but our site crew are out there laying out the grounds for tomorrow. Never fear, we have fine weather planned for tomorrow. 😛 Celebrate Mooroolbark will go ahead!
So to help you plan your day. Here’s our gorgeous site map, including some details on the Community Centre programming and the Youth Zone. (Thanks Ross Mackay Creative for making it so pleasing on the eye)
And while you’re twiddling your thumbs waiting for it all to begin, check out our #behindthescenes action on our Instagram feed.
At 10am the most spectacular Celebrate Mooroolbark Street Parade will go cruising down Brice Avenue, from Station Street to the festival site at Red Earth Park. So get there early to find a prime viewing spot! Here’s what’ll happen…
9.30 – 10.30am : Station Street (where the library and Hookey Park are located) will be closed to traffic for the parade participants to assemble and depart safely.
10am – 11am : Brice Avenue from Station Street to Hull Road (including car parks) will be closed to traffic to allow the Street Parade to occur safely.
So consider walking, cycling or catching public transport to avoid road closure hassles and parking woes. More info on your options are over here: https://celebratemooroolbark.com/getting-there/
Look out for all these wonderful folk in the parade!
The people of the Yarra Ranges find themselves in the unique and very fortunate position of having their own online community news site, with a growing number of films about our local communities.
Thanks Ian Skurrie for producing one about Celebrate Mooroolbark! We had a great time working on it with you and encourage everyone to use yarraranges.tv as a resource to find out about your community or to spread the word about your own project.
