Warrandyte Festival 2010 - action and fun!

The annual Warrandyte Festival was held on the weekend of March 19-21, 2010.

Warrandyte is an outer eastern village/suburb of Melbourne, about 25 km from the CBD, surrounded by hills, the Yarra River, and the Warrandyte State Park. Gold was first discovered in Victoria here in 1851.

This year's theme was "Warrandyte Dreaming", and it was run by the Warrandyte Festival Committee, and sponsored by the Manningham City Council and Nillumbik Shire Council.

Several thousand visitors came to join in the fun and action, with most of the activities and displays located on Stiggant's Riverbank.

Festival Feasting - food to suit every taste was available, as well as wine tasting from local wineries.

Radio Eastern 98.1 FM broadcast live happenings about the Festival from a studio on the Stiggant's Riverbank. The station was handing out free shopping bags, mugs, pens, and baseball caps!

Everyone enjoyed the music from various bands and groups, from the Riverbank and Main Stages!
