Skyfest New Year’s Eve Family Festival

Lakes Entrance Action & Development Association are currently  in the process of organising the Skyfest New Year’s Eve Family Festival 2017, Market and Activities.

The Festival this year will run from 12 Noon until 12 Midnight and will be conducted on the Foreshore and Esplanade as in previous years.

This year the focus is strongly on Families as indicated in the naming of the Festival.

Last year there were many, many comments from Locals and Visitors stating that they expected to see activities during the day in the lead up to the Concert and Fireworks, this year we are addressing those comments by extending the trading hours of the Market and activities from 12 noon to 12 Midnight.

In conjunction with Chants extending their Carnival with a new rollercoaster ride we will have an event which will be enjoyed by all.

As such LEADA are currently extending invitations to Clubs and Community Groups who may be interested in conducting a demonstration or workshop as part of the entertainment.

LEADA are also now taking applications from Stallholders who wish to be part of the Day/Night Market.

LEADA would greatly appreciate if you would pass this on to any of your contacts whom you believe may be interested in holding a stall in the Market.

Also if you are a member of a club or Community Group who you think would like to be part of the entertainment on the day, or would like to be involved in anyway during the festival, please contact:

Thank you for helping LEADA to spread the word, in an effort to create an event our town will be proud to present to families throughout the region and beyond.
