Moonee Valley Festival

On Sunday, 24 February, thousands of people converged on Queens Park,
Moonee Ponds, to enjoy the 36th annual Moonee Valley Festival, which is the
largest free community celebration in the municipality. Under sunny skies a
full day of enjoyment was had by all, with market and food stalls, roving
performances, entertainment stages, business exposition sites, and community
activities and displays.

This year there were more market stalls and entertainment stages than ever before. Today the festival is rightly regarded as one of the largest council-driven festivals in Melbourne. Congratulations to the volunteers, the organisers, the traders and the City of Moonee Valley on the recently held 36th annual Moonee Valley Festival.
