Ashwini SaseedaranSouth Western Times

Lollies, entertainment, food and market stalls will colour the banks of Collie River at this year’s Eaton Foreshore Festival on Sunday.

More than 8000 people are expected at the free family-friendly event that is in its 27th year.

With amusement rides, old machinery displays, river cruises, stand-up paddle boarding and a free kids play area, Eaton Primary School’s Parents and Citizens president Rebecca Walker said there was something for everyone to enjoy.

“There’s lots to see and do and a monster surprise will also be a big attraction for the younger kids,” she said.

As a school-based community volunteer effort, Mrs Walker said it was a great day out for the public to support the growth of the school.

“All funds raised go back to the school and into things like paying for part of the school chaplain, the mathletics programs and new learning and play equipment,” she said.

“We don’t have any major plans for this year but once we find out how much has been raised we will see what requires attention.

“Come along, have fun and make sure you get your hands on the very popular lolly jars.”
