Members Statement – Moonee Valley Festival 2016

Mr CARROLL — On Sunday, 28 February, I joined friends, family, colleagues, constituents and local businesses at the 39th annual Moonee Valley Festival. This fantastic
community event, held in Queens Park, Moonee Ponds, is a celebration of art, culture, food and music, as well as providing a place for businesses, community groups and of course our local Labor representatives to meet residents. I was pleased to see strong turnouts from the Rotary Club of Keilor East, the Moonee Valley Legal Service and the Bully Zero Australia Foundation. I even had my photograph taken with the King, Elvis Presley. This event is a great example of community spirit, with individuals and families, young and old, from all walks of life taking part. I congratulate everyone involved in the 2016 Moonee Valley Festival, especially the City of Moonee Valley, the staff, the volunteers, the generous sponsors and of course the vibrant local community.
