Members Statement – Moonee Valley Festival

Mr CARROLL (Niddrie) – Last Sunday, 22 February, I joined the thousands of people who once again converged on Queens Park, Moonee Ponds, to enjoy the 38th annual Moonee Valley Festival, Moonee Valley’s largest free community celebration. A fun summer day full of excitement was had by all, with market and food stalls, roaming performers, entertainment stages, business expo sites and community activities and displays showing what is happening in the city. It was a pleasure to attend the champagne breakfast prior to the festival commencing.

This event is a fantastic example of community spirit, with individuals and families, young and old, from all walks of life taking part. I congratulate everyone involved in the 2015 Moonee Valley Festival, especially the City of Moonee Valley, the staff, the volunteers, the generous sponsors and of course the vibrant local community.
