This year’s Eaton Foreshore Festival promises to be bigger and better than ever, according to organisers.

The event, which has been running for 27 years, is the Eaton Primary School’s biggest annual fundraiser.

Each year the popular day attracts about 10,000 people.

Event coordinator Fiona Hawes said the busy schedule would include some new additions as well as the return of some old favourites.

“There is going to be heaps of food this year with an array of food vans, as well as sideshow alley, with the bumper cars returning after a few years break,” Ms Howes said.

“There will be a number of performers on the day including Dance It South West, dancer Helen Goff, Irish dancers and others.”

She said there would also be more than 100 stalls including arts and craft, books, food and cake stalls, old machinery, tiny tot rides and trade displays.

“There is also going to be a stand up paddleboard race on the day,” she said.

Ms Howes encouraged families to come along to the event and have a fun day out.

“It is a free, family day out with lots to see and a great local event where people can walk or drive to,” she said.

The Eaton Foreshore Festival will be held on Sunday at the Pratt Road Reserve from 8.30am to 2pm.
