Circus performances, food trucks, market stalls and thousands of people are set to flock to the banks of the Collie River for The Health Hub Eaton Foreshore Festival.

Festival coordinator Felicity Metcher said this year’s event was predicted to be the biggest yet.

“We usually see around 8000 plus people turn out for the annual event but this year we are expecting record-breaking numbers,” she said.

With sideshow alley expected to be a major drawcard for the family-friendly event, Mrs Metcher said the event would feature a new and exciting experience.

“We’ve got the RAC rescue experience coming down which is a simulator so the kids can get in there and try it out,” she said.

The fun-filled day will also see free Scitech shows, a kids’ free play area, fire trucks, police vans, market stalls, stage performances, sideshow alley, rides, show bags and lots of fun games.

“It’s a really fun day out for the community and we have a major raffle draw on the day,” Mrs Metcher said.

“There are 12 prizes to win with the total value over $5000 worth of products and vouchers all donated from local businesses, so come on down and buy a raffle ticket.”
