Music to liven up Frankston


ALTHOUGH the annual Waterfront Festival was cancelled this year, live music and events are still scheduled around Frankston this month.

The “Live and Local Event Series” will replace the Waterfront Festival on the calendar this year. On the weekend beginning 20 March, four locations will host events for Frankston residents to enjoy.

A market with food vendors, amusement rides, and live music will be set up on Long Island Drive and McCombs Reserve from 2pm until 8pm on both Saturday and Sunday.

Youth Central forecourt at 60 Playne St will play host to performers from the FReeZA program. A professional street artist will also attend to teach and display their talents.

From 10am to 8pm on 20 March, Broughton Reserve in Seaford will host performances on the stage.

Local musicians will also entertain attendees to the cinema forecourt on Wells Street over the weekend.

Frankston councillor David Asker said “following a difficult 2020 which saw lockdowns and cancelled events, residents well and truly deserve the opportunity to get out and about and celebrate Frankston.”

“Our number one priority is providing a safe, healthy and fun event for locals, visitors, stallholders and performers. We’re committed to increased cleaning at all sites. There will also be QR code entry for all people and monitoring of numbers to enable the events are delivered in line with COVID safe practices.”
