Planning is full steam ahead for the 2017 Brown Hill Community Festival on Friday 27 October, 5.00-7.30pm at the Brown Hill Recreation Reserve, Humffray Street North. You can download the 2017 Festival Poster (PDF 378 kB).
Hear a VoiceFM interview about the Festival on Monday 23 October with Sarah Greenwood-Smith from the Festival Committee (18 minutes).
Local community groups will come together to offer a sausage sizzle, pancakes and cold drinks, each for a gold coin donation. Entertainment will include performances from students at Brown Hill Kindergarten, Caledonian Primary School and Woodman's Hill, a campus of Ballarat Secondary College. Family friendly activities such as face-painting and jumping castles will put smiles on lots of faces.
In addition to information stands with information from many Brown Hill Community Groups, the City of Ballarat will have a display about the new 'Brown Hill Local Area Plan' and 'Brown Hill Walking Maps' projects. This will be one of many opportunities to have your say.
