Portland's annual free Easter Family Festival will be held once again on Easter Saturday, April 20 from 11am to 2pm.
The venue is Saville Park which is opposite the Foundations' grand painted silos on Williwa street. You would also be very welcome to browse the historic town with its signs of yesteryear and great spots for a relaxing meal or cuppa.
Back to the festival: There are activities for all ages - balloon sculpting, making juggling balls, live music, crafts, community activities, face painting, jumping castles, kids' carpentry.
You can browse the book stall, share thoughts at the prayer marquee, enjoy cuppas and eats at the hospitality marquee as well as the very popular barbecue at lunch time.
The Portland fire brigade is always willing to display their skills and share from their wealth of knowledge.
Come and try out your coordination at water balloon volleyball or the jaffa smasha. Remember, this is a fun day and free.
If it is raining 'the show will still go on'. Just come over to the Community Centre on Villier Street in the grounds of Portland Central School.
On Good Friday, April 19 you may like to walk along with many others in a remembrance walk called 'The Way of the Cross'. There are reflections on the events of the First Easter, from Jesus' trial to death and resurrection.
We leave from the skate park at the lower end of Lime Street at 11am. You are very welcome.
For any queries phone Ian and Miriam on 6355 4104.
