Banna Avenue To Spring To Life This Easter Saturday

Thursday, 25 Mar 2021

Banna Avenue To Spring To Life This Easter Saturday Looking for something to do this Easter Saturday? Banna Avenue is the place to be for the entire family.
With thanks to a grant from the State Government’s Festival of Place – Summer Fund, the team at Visit Griffith have put together a fantastic program designed to offer something for everyone this Easter Saturday.
From 9am you can head to Banna Avenue and take in the Sidewalk Sale. After a tough year for everyone, especially our local business owners, this is a great opportunity to shop local and show your support – and maybe even pick up a bargain.
Griffith City Council’s Event Coordinator, Georgina Horton said the Sidewalk Sale is always popular amongst residents and visitors.
“As part of the Festival of Place, we are looking to ‘activate’ Griffith’s Banna Avenue and the Sidewalk Sale is just one way of achieving this,” said Ms Horton.
“If your Banna Avenue business would like to participate this year, please return your registration form to the Griffith Visitor Information Centre by Monday 29 March – take advantage of the increased foot traffic over Easter and set up a unique retail display on the sidewalk.”
“Shoppers can head to Banna Avenue, take in a spot of shopping, grab a bargain or two, a bite to eat and a cup of coffee and take in all that our vibrant main street has to offer,” she added.
Local bands will be performing throughout Banna Avenue, creating a festive atmosphere in the CBD.  
“We are excited to be able to provide space for local bands, who can show off their talents while entertaining you throughout the morning,” Ms Horton said.
“Looking for something more engaging? Head over to Memorial Park where local hula hoop performer, Dizzy Dilemma will be showing off her amazing hula skills.”
Families are well catered for with the annual Children’s Easter brunch, with thanks to the Combined Christian Churches taking place at the CWA Park from 9.30am – 12.30pm.
Enjoy a free brunch, before participating in the Easter egg hunt, games, arts and crafts, or sit back and relax with live music.
Chair of the Tourism & Events Committee, Councillor Christine Stead said Banna Avenue will be a hive of activity this Easter Saturday morning.
“Whether it’s shopping, live music or the Children’s Easter Brunch, there really is something for the entire family to enjoy along Banna Avenue,” said Councillor Stead.
“Just remember to be COVID safe – check in via the QR codes, maintain social distancing, and regularly santise. We want you to enjoy Easter while keeping safe and healthy.”
